Yellowfin ships with a list of commonly used JDBC drivers (see screenshot below).
If you wish to use a driver that is not available in Yellowfin you can simply add this driver to the JDBC Driver list.

Note: Databases in the list that are 'greyed' out are missing the actual JDBC driver.

1. Copy your JDBC driver JAR file(s) into the Yellowfin/appserver/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/lib/ directory.

2. Restart the Yellowfin service.

you will need to edit the web.xml (located :Yellowfin/appserver/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/) and manually add it to the driver list.
Add your driver name under the 'JDBCDrivers' parameter.

Example:
[code]
JDBCDrivers

[color="#EE4243"> com.ddtek.jdbc.openedge.OpenEdgeDriver, [/color]
[/code]

Once you have added the name, save the file and restart the Yellowfin service.
The driver will now be available when using the 'Generic JDBC Data Source'
