          4.0 is a developer's release so you probably should not be using it yet.

              I am a new bie to Jboss 4.0, but after spending come time and going thru documentation.. i got it worked.

              Here are the steps:

              1. Create the mysql-ds.xml file with the following config info.

              <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>


              2. Copy this file into the default/deploy directory of jboss.
              3. Also get the latest version of Mysql JCA Conector from mysql.com. It is named 'mysql-connector-java-3.0.8-stable-bin.jar'.
              4. Copy this file into deploy/lib directory.

              Now you are ready to access the database. Here is the a small snippet to access database in some session bean.

              Get the datasource.
              Note: check the jndi name in the above configuration.

              InitialContext ctx = new InitialContext();

              //Load mysql datasource
              ds = (DataSource) ctx.lookup("java:/MySqlDS");
              System.out.println("Data source initialized.");


              Access the database:
              java.sql.Connection conn = ds.getConnection();

              java.sql.Statement stmt = conn.createStatement();
              String sql = "SELECT name FROM trail";
              java.sql.ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery(sql);



              I hope that helps.
