I've recently ended up using Resin (Caucho's app server, which includes the Quercus PHP engine) and am seriously impressed with it's performance and capabilities. I'm running it on a Linux LPAR against DB2 for i5/OS and the thing just screams. I'm not using the PHP portion, but for those who are into PHP but want to take advantage of the wealth of Java libraries and the flexibility of JDBC I feel it deserves serious consideration. I haven't run it natively on i5/OS, and there is a native portion to the install which may need to be built in PASE, but that part is optional (I haven't been able to get it to build on linux-ppc64... yet...) but the core engine is 100% Java and works great. Apparently they can even run PHP faster than PHP -- they claim a 4x speedup for Drupal, for instance.

I would also seriously look at PHP. It appears to perform better on the i
than Java and is as ubiquitous in terms of multi-platform as you can get.

If you go the PHP way, then be very careful with how you access the
database, as the traditional way is database dependent.

I.e. you need to maintain different code depending on which backend you
intend to use.

Also look at the Quercus module from Caucho.com - it appears to be a
PHP-compatible module written in Java giving you JVM flexibility.
