Hello All,

Does anyone know about recent compilers (or programming environments)
which store code outside the ordinary hierarchical filesystem (as
provided by Unix or similar [Windows, Plan9] operating systems)?

I know about old Lisp and Smalltalk machines (which stored code in
their [then huge] virtual memory persistent space). I also know about
Cecil and Self which provided similar environments on Unix.

I heard about some IBM Java? or C++? compiler which stored source code
in some kind of RDBMS but I forgot the details, and welcome any white
paper references. Conceptually this means that the compiler is
integrated in a IDE, or at least an editor, which stores code in the
RDBMS and notify the compiler. This permit smart recompilation (of
only changed functions) - at a finer grain than usual make+compiler

I would be specially interested by an opensource implementation
running on Linux (but this probably does not exist, I would have found
it already).
