Introduction

It is not always clear how to scale up from small "batch oriented" Haskell applications to large scale "Real World/Enterprise" Haskell systems.

The following articles discuss different ways to attack this problem.

Event Driven Applications

An event driven application/system is here defined to be an application/system that reacts to external events.

Examples would be:

  • A text editor that reacts to user events (key pressed, mouse moved).
  • A web server reacting to IO events (message arrived, image compression done).
  • A commercial game reacting to simulated physics events and user input.
