work on the platform. The
MysqldResource class is really a
wrapper for a native version of MySQL, so not all platforms
are supported. At the time of this writing, Linux on the i386
architecture has been tested and seems to work quite well, as
does OS X v10.3. There has been limited testing on Windows and
JDK-1.4 or newer (or the JRE if you aren't going to be compiling the source or JSPs).
MySQL Connector/J version 5.0 or newer (from http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/j/) installed and available using your CLASSPATH.

JBoss - 4.0rc1 or newer.
Apache Tomcat - 5.0 or newer.
Sun's JMX reference implementation version 1.2.1 (from http://java.sun.com/products/JavaManagement/).
JUnit 3.8.1 (from http://www.junit.org/).
If building from source, All of the requirements from above, plus:
Ant version 1.5 or newer (download from http://ant.apache.org/).
