Sorry, to answer you're question--there's a book by Al Stevens in which you develop the database in C++. It's probably out of print, but I'm sure there are used copies around. I probably still have one but will never be able to find it. It was called something like C++ Database Development. It takes you through the whole process of building the DB.
