Find a JDBC driver (such as mm.mysql) for MySQL and place it into /Library/Java/Extensions and you are all set. Restart CF server and go to Administration : Datasource, you'll see MySQL is on the dropdown list.

mm.mysql-2.0.14-bin.jar can be found here http://www.mysql.com/downloads/api-jdbc-stable.html

    Yes, that will certainly work.

    I use a slightly different approach that allows use of a 3rd-part GUI SQL client.

    The advantages are:

    interfaces any jdbc compliant db

    displays schema information

    allows interactive query creation/testing/debugging.
