JavaMelody for JIRA configuration

I am using JIRA 7.1.1 with a direct jdbc connection. I am unable to connect to capture MySQL (SQL metrics) for the JavaMelody plugin. I have followed the developer documents but  perhaps I am doing something else wrong. The error message I receive:

Unable to bootstrap application: The database driver (net.bull.javamelody.JbdcDriver) was not found in the class path.

You should use the plugin for JIRA / Confluence / Bamboo and you should define a datasource.

For details, see:

I have just updated the wiki page above for the datasource config when using JIRA 7 (maxTotal instead of maxActive).

Could you provide an example configuration if I am currently using jdbc direct? How would javamelody be configured if you are planning for JIRA Data Center? Will this configuration need to be applied to each JIRA Data Center node? 

I have not tested myself in JIRA data center. And yes, I think that the datasource configuration should be applied to each node.
