vt_create_text_index makes a separate table for storing the text index information and separate procedures and triggers for maintaining this data. These are automatically dropped if the original table is dropped.

The updates to the indexed column are recorded in a separate update tracking table. This table, named VTLOG_<qualifier>_<owner>_<table> contains a row for each row in the indexed table that has been changed since the text index was last updated.

The text index is stored in a table named <table>_<column>_WORDS. The generated tables are made under the qualifier that is current at the time of their creation. The owner is the creating user.
