Say,
We wish to use JasperReportsServer 5, which seems to support postgresql as default.
Our data is in MySql 5 on Linux server.
Is there a simple way to sync the data between the 2?

I think you should just configure Jasper to use mysql datasource.  That will be a way lot easier.  Go to section 4.1 of http://community.jaspersoft.com/documentation/jasperreports-server-administration-guide-v500

I don't believe you need to.  Jasper supports multiple data sources so you just add a mysql data source.  You will need to download the mysql jdbc driver from http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/j/ and extract the jar file to the apache-tomcat/lib directory, restart tomcat (I just used the ctlscript.sh script to restart everything.)

In the data source definition you set Driver to com.mysql.jdbc.Driver and URL to something like jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/test

That's as far as I've gone so far =)

Again you can keep the postgresql data source with the sample data, then just add a mysql data source for your real data.  No need to transfer data from postgresql to mysql or vice-versa

Think you should file that as a separate question and provide details what exactly you want to do i.e. what is the format of the data, etc

Follow the instructions in the documentation I mentioned above and you will realize you can add a mysql data source (and more) without removing the default postgresql data source.
