I think you could use the java external application API to request the operating system run an executeable as a job (say a Java compiler). The specific executable in your case would be a (Java) compiler.
The parameters would be the source file and compiler options. Depending on the specific compiler, your driver program could look for certain files in certain directories for output, read in the files, and process according to DB rules and file contents.
All of the information for a given compiler or program could be stored in the database.
Sounds interesting. Keep me posted if you would. Good luck!
