I think what you are asking is how to get started creating web apps using JBossAS and JSP.  And you also want to know about Java portals.

For getting started, any tutorial on JSPs should work (google for "jsp tutorial"). But note that in Java, unlike in PHP, there are several different "platforms" (JBossAS is one of those platforms) on which you can deploy your JSPs and each platform uses a slightly different deployment mechanism. Some good books that will get you started include:

JBoss at Work by Marrs and Davis
JBoss: A Developer's Guide by Richards and Griffith

You can find links to both on the documentation page at http://labs.jboss.com/jbossas/docs/

Both books start by describing how to develop, deploy and run a simple hello world app. Though both are based on an older version of JBossAS. 

Or you could download the free first chapter for JBoss in Action at http://www.manning.com/jamae, which also covers a simple hello world program, but that book is based on the upcoming JBossAS 5.0.

As for portal, take a look at the JBoss Portal. The documentation is very good and should get you up and running once you have an understanding of JSPs.

Finally, to access your data in MySQL, take a look at JBoss Seam. Once again, excellent documentation.
