Hi,
I've got to write a small web app based on an AS/400. I've never touched WAS in my life so I could do with some advice.
I only intend using servlets, JSP's and vanilla Java classes (i.e. no EJBs).
Should I be able to use v3.5 to do this or do I need to get v4.0 for single server? v3.5 comes standard with AS/400s so it would be nice if I could just use that.
Which version of Java does 3.5 support?
What do I need to get started?
If I write my app to work with the standard J2ee SDK, should it work on Websphere?
I've looked on IBM's Website and there's enough documentation to fell all the trees in Norway. So if anyone can give me some pointers, I'd be very grateful.
Cheers,
Lee.

Hi Lee,
We have used Websphere 3.5 standard on an as400 machine.(coz its available with the as 400 pack)
use fixpack 5 if possible during installation else u mite face a lot of problems.
the jdk version used is 1.1.7.( for websphere 3.5 FP 4).
u wont have ne problems using vanilla java on the standard application server(as long as u idnt use EJBs)
So long

Hello,
I think using WAS 4.0 Adv. Edition is way to go. We just upgraded from 3.0 to 4.0 into AS/400. For long term, you should consider Adv. Edition since you will never know what's your next project.
Cheer's.
