The BerkeleyDBXML package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

This package is a Haskell binding for Berkeley DB XML, which is a powerful, fully transactional, XML-based database written in C++ that uses XQuery as its query language. It is NOT an SQL database. It is not free for commercial use.

The binding is only about 70% complete, but it should allow you to write a fairly serious application. If you would like a particular part of the API added, please contact me.

If Berkeley DB or DB XML is not installed in the default location of /usr or usrlocal, you will need to specify the paths in this way:

 cabal install BerkeleyDBXML \
    --extra-include-dirs=/usr/local/dbxml-2.5.16/include/ \
    --extra-include-dirs=/usr/local/dbxml-2.5.16/include/dbxml/ \

See the examples/ directory for examples.
