The Sigbjorn Finne's .NET integration is also ported
to GHC but I am not sure whether it is efficient
enough. The bridge uses reflection to call .NET
methods and each time when the method is called it is
located by its name. I am working on simple report
engine in Haskell which is callable from .NET and uses
.NET classes as datasource. The solution which I
choice was to build DLL in managed C++ which is called
from Haskell. It is not so hard to automate this task
with an apropriate tool.
