As far as I know, there is no straightforward way to use MAXIMA as a kernel. Here's something that may be useful:
The first program is a daemon that starts several instances of MAXIMA, keeps them alive, and let's you talk to them via a socket. From your other language, call the socket when you need anything (a Perl example is included). Works very well for us, just don't look at the duct tape behind the scenes.
