Subject: [Caml-list] Need advice for a mobile application server
Hello there,

I am looking to consider ocaml for writing a multi-threaded application server 
which involves data structures of medium complexity (to be specific geometric 
structures). Do you think ocaml is a good bet for this purpose, or should I 
stick with C++? (in which I know how to write SMP code :)

Will it be easy and efficient for me to implement imperative data structures 
which should be locked on update ops, but will not need such on queries (yes, 
I know it sounds naughty but it should be possible)? Or are there well known 
obstacles to performing such feats using our beloved ocaml?

Your advice will be much appreciated.
