Is there any solution (say a proxy) that makes MySQL replication cluster behave like one database towards developers? And developers then don't need to worry about using master to write and slaves to read etc.?

My first thought was that you would need a read/write splitting proxy. And the closest to that is the MySQL Proxy project, but the furthest that project has is a proof of concept

The other, probably more desired, approach is to set up something like Percona XtraDB Cluster behind HAProxy.

I have yet to see an actual implementation of MySQL Proxy past proof-of-concept. +1 for suggesting Percona XtraDB Cluster and HA Proxy (more real-world). –  RolandoMySQLDBA Dec 17 '12 at 19:21
