[Haskell-cafe] One of the new buzz phrases is "Event-Sourcing"; is Haskell suitable for this?

No. .Acid state is explcitly managed by the process by means of state
In Control.Workflow the state is managed in a implicit way.
It is a monad transformer mainly is designed for wrapping IO computations.
the lifting primitive, step, store the intermediate result and recover the
in acid state the process choose what to write in the state
in workflow the state written is the complete state of the process.
See the example in the documentation. the process ,
import System.IO (hFlush,stdout)
mcount n= do step
putStr (show n ++ " ")
return () -- to disambiguate the return type
main= exec1 <http://hackage.haskell.org/packages/archive/Workflow/0.7.0.7/doc/html/Control-Workflow.html#v:exec1>
"count" $ mcount (0 :: Int)
>>> *runghc demos\sequence.hs*>0 1 2 3
>CTRL-C Pressed>>> *runghc demos\sequence.hs*>3 4 5 6 7
>CTRL-C Pressed>>> *runghc demos\sequence.hs*>7 8 9 10 11
in subsequent executions the process start to execute IO computations from
the last point logged:
As the documentation says some side effect can be re-executed after
recovery if the log is not complete. This may happen after an unexpected
shutdown (in this case Contro-C has been pressed) or due to an asynchronous
log writing policy. (see
) (writing is cached).
Althoug this is not event sourcing, The logging and recovery facilities can
be used for even sourcing.
