Luis, you can play (and test) completely inside of RBD. It has a built-in WebSphere test environment. If you want to run the latest version of thin-client EGL on the IBM i, though, you'll want to install a relatively recent version of Tomcat. The latest version of servlet specification is 2.5, which in turn requires Tomcat 6 and Java 1.5.

Note that this is only for thin client EGL. Rich UI doesn't care which HTTP server you run. Only thin client worries about it, and even then you can change the facets to some degree.

Hope this helps!


Hi all,

First, let me hope that you and yours have had an wonderful Christmas and,
at the same time, I want to express you all my best wishes for the upcoming

Usually (not always, though!), the firsts days of January are a little slow
around here, and I wanted to play a little with EGL. Unfortunately we are
stuck here with V5R3. Does anybody know if I can use our current release of
Apache/Tomcat with EGL?

Thanks in advance,
