The database drivers are all located in connectivity module. HSQLDB is
in connectivity/source/drivers/hsqldb and configuration for it in
connectivity/registry/hsqldb . The registry and component files are
further processed in postprocess/packregistry/ and
postprocess/packcomponents/, respectively. Your new SQLite
driver should use the same structure.

Thank you for working on this. Ask if you have any further questions. :-)
