Parallel or Distributed Java Compiler?

Greetings,

Does anyone know if there is a tool similar to distcc
(http://distcc.samba.org/) for Java? I'm interested in finding a parallel
or distributed Java compiler.

Thanks for your time.

First question should probably be "why do you need it?".
How much code do you have? I build ~250 000 lines of code from ~2500
java files in a few seconds when I use jikes. So if you really need a
distributed java compiler you must have _HUGE_ amounts of code.

Now javac is slower than jikes, but last time I checked it was only 4
times slower if I gave javac enough memory, the default 64 MB heap is
not enough for javac.

Do you have a makefile that does something stupid for java
compilation? like starting javac for each file you build?
