https://freeswitch.org/confluence/display/FREESWITCH/FreeSWITCH+Databases tells 
me that "Instead of using the default SQLite database as the internal 
FreeSWITCH database, you can use any core database type. This works for:

Each of those is a link, and if I click on the mod_sofia link I get to the page 
https://freeswitch.org/confluence/display/FREESWITCH/mod_sofia which tells me 
nothing about using ODBC.

If I scroll further down the first page I started from, the heading "Configuring 
FreeSWITCH to use databases" has a sub-section "mod_sofia" with a link pointing 
to https://freeswitch.org/confluence/display/FREESWITCH/Sofia+Configuration+Files 
whose only mention of ODBC is:

If you have ODBC support and a working dsn you can use it instead of SQLite
<param name="odbc-dsn" value="dsn:user:pass"/>

So, where can find the information telling me _how_ I can put my sofia 
configuration into ODBC, instead of XML files?

Basically I'm looking for the equivalent of Asterisk's "Realtime" configuration 
option, where SIP connections can be held in a database table instead of a flat 
file, meaning that (a) it's easier to maintain dynamically, and (b) new entries 
get used without needing a reload.

I'm liking FreeSwitch (after using it for about a month), but still finding it 
sometimes hard to discover the definitive documentation for what it can do (or 
how to make it do it).
