searching word docs within a database

Greetings,
I am in the process of building a system that will store documents (word, excel, powerpoint, text, flowcharter ...)
in a data base and then display to the user (so far, not
a problem).
Question: I would like to keep the backends as generic as
possible - but I need to search the contents of the documents.
Does anyone have any recommendations (or should I scrap the generic back end and design and implement a specific db (such as
oracle)?
Thanks,
Steve
