Yes, we have and are working with the Remote AWT.

We ported our Sun, NT, Win95 JAVA Point of Sale (POS) to the OS/400 beta
V4R2 in December '97 using an IBM NC1000 as the client.  The only problems
encountered were where to put the images, they had to be in the boot
directory of the NC, and the DB2/400 interface took a lot of work.  Other
than that, the initial performance was a little slow.  I had to throw out
the old way of tuning an AS/400 and convert to a "thread" based tuning
environment.  Our server application supports not only the thin clients,
but any client running the client portion of our java application.  The
NC1000, with max memory over 10MB ethernet, is as fast as all of the other
"fat" clients after initial load of the client code.  We have both POS cash
registers with scanners, card swipes, and printers running and touch screen
kiosks with scanners running at the same time.

Or either Java on the '400 is so usable that no one has any
problems to report :)
Seriously, we've only started using it, but find the performance
of PC programs accessing '400 databases through the AS/400 Java
Toolkit to be nothing short of amazing.  If I came up against a
thorny problem, I would post here, but I haven't!
One thing we haven't tried is the Remote AWT (Java program runs
on the '400 but displays its GUI output on a PC).  Has anyone
worked with this?  Are there any gotchas?
