After 4 comments and no solution I thought I'd help my fellow Java nerds out.
The exception is caused by an incorrect version of the commons collection library.
The library I used to correct the exception is "commons-collections-3.2.jar", which you can get at http://commons.apache.org/downloads/download_collections.cgi.
Also to note, and as probably expected, you will need the library for the version of mysql you are using.
The version of mysql I use is 5.0, and the library I use is "mysql-connector-java-5.0.6-bin.jar", which you can get the latest driver at http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/j/5.1.html.
Simply put the database library in one of locations on the server's classpath or in the application lib folder.
