Haskell database library with ACID guarantees - GHC libraries

AcidState is a Haskell library to store serializable Haskell structures, guaranteeing that transactions support the ACID semantic. That is, they must be atomic (a transaction must be completely saved or completely rolled back), consistent (after each transaction the state of the database must be valid), isolated (two parallel transaction must not interfere with each other) and durable (a successful transaction must be reliably stored to a persistent memory).

This library supports both storing data on the local disk and via a network server.

This package provides a library for the Haskell programming language. See for more information on Haskell. It obsoletes the package haskell-happstack-state.
