Gosling and JoSQL

Ran into James Gosling promoting hash maps and RAM as an alternative to SQL. My team has as positive experience with this approach. Coupling it with JoSQL for a SQL-like syntax we can query our object collections. Adding a ZQL ANSI SQL parser and some simple AST editing, we can take pure SQL where clauses and find matching objects in our maps, performantly too. Custom SQL functions are a bonus.
