jPortal 2.4 CR3 does not work with mysql. If you use jPortal 2.4 CR2 or check out the code from CVS and compile it, both of those options work with mysql5.
I am currently running 2.2, does that work with mysql5? Thanks.
Well according to the documentation http://docs.jboss.com/jbportal/v2.2/user-guide/en/html_single/#supportedversions
MySQL5 is supported but there is a problem with truncation that can be solved if you follow the faq found http://wiki.jboss.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=AvoidMySQL5DataTruncationErrors
