I've been thinking about writing a server to deliver multimedia content 
to clients and am looking for a language to program the server in.  I 
figure since I know a little bit of erlang, I'd give a more complex 
problem (like this) a go.  I need to connect to a db, pull out the 
results of some query and throw it out to the client in XML (preferably 
in a UTF-8 encoding).  The client may select one of the items, or search 
again.  If they select an item, the server sends the client the file.

Can anyone provide any links for working with XML and Databases in 
Erlang?  Admittedly, I haven't looked very much but am going to search 
thoroughly when time permits.

Also are there any good examples of servers written in Erlang? I was 
going to have a look at Yaws later, is that a good example of something
