J2EE on Windows 95/98?

Okay, you probably think I am crazy for even asking this question, but I cannot find any hard statement of it...
Will J2EE work on Windows 95/98? All the documentation I run across either says NT/2000 or nothing at all ... The reason I am asking is that I do quite a bit of development in my spare time for personal projects and I have a meager little Win95 box right now. I am having problems getting J2EE servers to run (Spec and JBoss) and was wondering if it was me (or my computer) or just the fact that I am running Windblows 95.
Also ... can anyone give me a reason why it is not supported on 95/98?
Thanks in advance for any info.

the MS DOS in win95/98 can't recognize some set clauses in following batch files:
j2ee.bat deploytool.bat ... and all other batch files.
the reason has been explained in the following link.
I am also working on j2ee on my win98, there's one day it work and can run the sample application. But aferterwards, some error appeared. still working on it.
just change the content in those batch files, be patient, it may drive you mad when copy and paste.

I am running it on my laptop with Windows ME and haven't had any problems.

I have sucessfully executed it on my Win98 machine, but I could not execute the Pet Store application. I guess that was just a minor configuration problem
