The empty resultset thing may be related to no populated data. I saw you inserted into database "mysql". Have you changed the "dbName" key to use "mysql" instead of the default "jforum"?
Rafael Steil wrote:Hm, as connecting to mysql via jdbc without an username may result in problems with authentication, it is possible that the wizard has some bug related to this issue.
In your case I don't recommend using the installer.

Rafael Steil wrote:You dont' need to restart tomcat after you run the sql scripts IF you alredy didn't tried to access the application. That's because jforum puts a lot of data in memory, and running the sql scripts after the jforum's servlet was loaded may result in not found data ( and then a restart is needed. ).

These are the steps. With them you should get jforum running.
