Well, I'll put my hand up, I use Haskell with databases and web stuff...
Unfortunately when I started the common tools were not available. I have
a home-grown Haskell-Servlet server, with monadic continuation based
HTML composition and a HaskellDB like database layer. It all works very
well, but being written for internal use (and me being lazy) it has only
those features that I need. It is however designed as an integrated
Web-Application platform... I was considering releasing it - but since I
started other projects like HaskellDB restarted, WASH was written, HSQL
started to support unix, and somebody added plugins to the Haskell
Web-Server - So I didn't bother, although I am still using it myself...
Still I now know that HaskellDB has significant limitations, and the
relational algebra approach I took is far more robust and flexable...
I don't have time to take this from a usable but incomplete project to a
fully implemented API - what I mean here is that not all ODBC calls are
implemented, some SQL features might be missing, some tags are not
defined... not all HTTP requests and errors are generated, oh and
there's no documentation. If anyone were interested in
using/contributing I could give CVS access to the code.
