We propose the demonstration of Keymantic, a system for keyword-based searching in relational databases that does not require a-priori knowledge of instances held in a database. It finds numerous applications in situations where traditional keyword-based searching techniques are inapplicable due to the unavailability of the database contents for the construction of the required indexes.
