Are you experimenting on a personal project? Are you introducing it at work? Have you taken it to production?
What's your story?

Then we built a small, simple, pseudo-ORM in Clojure to replace some of the libraries we were using - so that we can mix'n'match between RDBMS and noSQL datastores by using plain maps for data ad persisting them transparently. We took the Clojure code to production a few weeks back and it's proven rock solid (any bugs have been our own code!). We just added connection pooling (a few lines of Clojure).

I am currently using the Clojure plugin (counter clockwise) with Eclipse.
