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?
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
