You mean you want to know where to find the JDBC jar file? Since you mention MySQL, the driver jar will be available here http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/j/5.1.html. After you download that .tar/.zip, extract it to some folder. Inside that you will find a jar (ex: mysql-connector-java-5.1.8-bin.jar). Copy that jar to $JBOSS_HOME/server/default/lib

You will have to edit it to point to the correct database URL and the user name, password.

More details about the datasource configuration can be found here:
