Actually this DB provider functionality is pretty much the same as standard .Text DB provider, except search capabilities. It’s implemented through Matisse ODBMS’s Entry-Point dictionaries without any more complicated search string parsers, so it works for one word search. I’m working on a little bit more complicated string parser with the same functionality Scott announced here
Looks like someone has already created a new data provider for .Text. I hope to have some time to create a mySql or Access provider for those who don't have SQL server. My host doesn't provide SQL except at higher hosting plans, but I do have mySql. Never worked with mySql... Wonder how different it really is?
