Where did he set up the database connection in the Mirth engine?

The guy who programmed the SQL is no longer available and we have an issue.  I can find his SQL in the transformers and identify the tables he is using, but for the life of me I cannot determine where the database resides.  He doesn't use the call to the database connection factory in the individual transformers (only the SQL calls), so he must have set it globally, but I cannot find it.

We need direct access to the tables to solve the issue  --  any ideas where in the Mirth engine I should be looking?

Thanks in advance!

Please have a look at  %MIRTH_HOME%/conf/database directory with the filename database-database.sql.
Can you also have a look at ODBC data sources in Windows? maybe there are DSN's pointing to the SQL server for connectivity purpose?
