Here I will describe how to configure a MySQL 5 DataSource for JBoss EAP 6.
Install MySQL JDBC Driver as JBoss EAP 6 Module
Create a new directory under modules and a new module.xml file.
Download the MySQL JDBC driver and put it in the same catalog as module.xml. If necessary correct resource path below, with the downloaded jdbc driver file name.
If this is a server installation make sure that the new directories and files get the right permission.
Configure JBoss EAP 6 DataSource
Here we will use JBoss EAP 6 in standalone mode, but if you like to use the domain mode, the configuration is the same. Open $JBOSS_HOME/standalone/configuration/standalone.xml.
