1. Make sure the test fixture is configured to use MySQL (by default, it is, but look into tests/build.xml, all stress tests must start with test.database set to be "mysql"
2. Make sure RDBMS is started and the database specified in connectionURL exists
./mysqladmin.exe create messaging
3. Make sure the apropriate driver (ex: mysql-connector-java-3.0.17-ga-bin.jar) exists under src/resources
3.1 Modify tests/build.xml, bin/runtest, bin/start-rmi-server if driver name changes
cd tests ./build.sh stressreport
