we have been using a product named "SMARTsystem" from Procase which has
all the neat features you list except that it only supports C at the
moment. The features are truely incredible and useful.
There are some drawbacks though:
o A project with only 8 MB of source code takes 50+ MB of disk for
its database and 30 to 50MB of address space to run.
o The database takes from 5 to 30 minutes to generate.
o Code is stored in the database and has to be exported before it can be
be compiled. This can lead to coherency problems.
o You need a UNIX system to run it (actually this is a benefit IMHO).
However, the fact that we purchased the product is testimony that we believe
it to be useful.
