You can upload database drivers in Datameer on the Admin tab then Database Drivers tab. A list of the available drivers is displayed. Here you can select to add a new driver or to edit an existing driver (i.e. update to a more current version). Follow the steps for the specific driver you are uploading.

In the list of available drivers, the File column might be empty. This is the case for the HSQL (file) database driver which is pre-installed. Also if you are running Datameer in MySQL then the File column for the MySQL database driver may also be empty.

Datameer supports the following database drivers: 

Untested 3rd party JDBC drivers haven't been qualified by Datameer. Generally, ANSI SQL compliant JDBC connections (such as SharePoint or SQL Azure) should work by loading the corresponding JDBC driver. Drivers such as Apache Phoenix that don't support SCHEMA, INSERT, and UPDATE, but do support UPSERT, don't work. At this time, Impala JDBC isn't working.
