1.4 A breakdown of the delivery process
The process of developing and delivering a LispWorks application can typically be broken down as follows:
Develop and fully compile your application.
Load the application into the LispWorks image and deliver a standalone image.
If the delivered version of the image is broken, go back to step 2 and adjust the delivery parameters.
If performance problems remain, go back to step 1 and refine your code.
