Do you have any suggestions on what to use
With Java you have a lot of choice and it can be difficult to make a choice.
Glassfish and MySQL is not a bad choice at all.
and how to configure them or any material to read?Manuals. And you'll be doing a lot of reading.
Being a JBoss geek I cannot let it pass to recommend to at least investigate JBoss 7.1 as a possible alternative to Glassfish :)
Also MySQL works fine and is very common and thus very much documented, which is a big plus. But I would not pass up the chance to look into PostgreSQL as well. To me that is basically the perfect balance between the simplicity of MySQL and the power of an Oracle DBMS.
It depends on what you want to do with it of course, a simple web application works perfectly fine on MySQL, but then you probably also don't need the horsepower of a full enterprise container. You can also just use Tomcat 7 which is fast, easy to setup, well documented and doesn't use up so many resources either.
