Hi,


I have several questions about the connectors in Pentaho. I precise that I am totally starting on this program.

- Is there a generic connector (or template) to create a connector ?

- Are the connectors are all in a free license ?

- Where can I find a full list of the connectors in Pentaho ? I don't find it in the documentation.


Thank you !

Enguerrand.

The database connections logic comes from the Kettle (Pentaho Data Integration) project.

The generic connection is called "Generic" <cough>

All the connectors we ship are free to be shipped. Some drivers still need an ODBC or JDBC driver because we're not allowed to ship them.
However, even for those we try to support the SQL dialect and other specifics of the RDBMS.
