Seamless MySQL Connector J 3.x on ColdFusion

I use MySQL 4.1 almost exclusively for my work, and was a little bummed
that neither CF 6.1 nor CF7 support the 3.x Connector J driver for
it.  You can use the old driver, but you run into issues because

It's been forever since I've posted, but I'm going to try and get back
to posting at least a couple times a week again.  First topic is Sean Corfield's
"Frameworks: Fusebox or Mach-II" talk that he gave last night at the
Seattle CFUG meeting.  I'm not sure that's the exact title, but
it's close enough.  There were about 20 [...]
