Is it possible to run Tomcat on iSeries?

Tomcat will run on anything that has a JVM available.
Depending on the hardware configuration it may or may not run at decent performance, but what iSeries machines I've seen would have no problems there.

We are running Tomcat on an iSeries for a small application that does not get much use at this time. It works but I don't know if there would be performance issues with higher usage.

If anyone else is running on iSeries I have a question. When I start Tomcat on a client's machine with the following command:

SBMJOB CMD(QSH CMD('/jakarta-tomcat/bin/')) JOB(STARTTOM) JOBQ(&JOBQ) CCSID(37)

I get two jobs (TOMCAT and QP0ZSPWT) running until I end Tomcat but on our development machine the STARTTOM job ends after a couple of minutes and QP0ZSPWT runs until I end Tomcat. Both machines are at V5R3 and both are running Tomcat 5.5.4. Something must be different but I can't find it.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts or suggestions.
