Yes, it's possible. Why would you think it is not? Geronimo's a Java
EE 5-certified application server where databases are accessible via
database pools managed by a server. If there's a jdbc driver for a
database (type 4 recommended), chances are it'll work without any
configuration troubles. I don't remember I have tried out setting up
MySQL myself, but I wouldn't expect any (fundamental) issues with it.
Just define a database pool using the administration console of
Geronimo and voila - use it in your enterprise applications. Read
about it in the Geronimo v2.0 documentation at "Configuring database
pools" [1].
