Setting up Worklight development environment

I want to learn about Worklight which is mobile application development platform that you can use for developing HTML5, native and hybrid applications. So i decided to install it on my machine and i followed these steps
  1. First i did go to Worklight Evaluation Version Download Page and i did download all the software listed on the page
  2. I followed the same steps mentioned in the document to install it on my Windows XP machine, The first time i installed MySQL on my machine i did not follow the MySQL Configuration Guide for Windows and my Worklight server installation failed to start on the first page where it asks for the MySQL connection information. So i did have to reconfigure it to use the steps mentioned in the MySQL Configuration Guide for Windows guide. I think unless you disable Strict Mode the WorkLight server install does not work.
Besides that installing the WorkLight steps on the document works pretty well.
