I'd say, Haskell would be an excellent language to write an abstract
interpreter for Java byte code for code analysis, error detection etc.

Or even a *concrete* interpreter aka JVM :-)

If there only were a ready-to-use library that just reads (not interprets)
Java byte code into some abstract form. Unfortunately, that's the really
boring part.
