Just curious about:
What's the database engine product that puts the database objects directly
into filesystem files?
Sybase uses a database device (a kind of proprietary internal file system)
where it keep all its databases (or just did so in earlier versions);
SqlServer (as built originally by Sybase for MS) had the same behavior and
it was dropped in Sql7 to go back to two filesystem files for database: the
database itself and the the journal (or log) file.
But I still don't remember a relational product that uses, for example, one
file for each table; other than Paradox and Dbase and desktop databases
alike, that I was aware at least.
