Description of problem:
In the RHQ's mysql plugin we bundle the mysql-connector-java JDBC driver in version 5.1.6.
That version has a known classloader leak that leads to eventual permgen depletion over several restarts of plugin container in the RHQ's agent.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure MySQL plugin is enabled and deployed to RHQ agent
2. Start a MySQL server on a box with RHQ agent
3. restart the plugin container (without fully restarting the whole RHQ agent) a couple of times (> 20).
The mysql-connector-java is currently at version 5.1.32, so it's probably time we upgraded to a more recent version.
