Well I checked the "something silly" first thing I got to work (I posted
from home after the second early morning call) and lo and behold I find
that a 5769JV1 component is missing. I must have missed it on the original
install somehow.

I installed that but Java still wouldn't play. I came back later that night
and IPL'ed and re-installed the products 5769JC1 & 5769JV1 and re-installed
a couple of PTF's and it now appears to be fine and dandy.

The sequence of events was as follows: installed Domino and Java Toolbox as
part of V4R4. Did some development. Applied lots of PTF's. Upgraded Domino
to 5.0.1.02. Applied lots of PTF's. Domino worked correctly. Found that the
option 2 of the Toolbox was missing Java somethings 1.1.7. Installed Option
2 of the Toolbox. Ran Domino. IPL-ed machine when it hung. Applied more
PTF's. Ran Domino. IPL-ed machine machine when it hung. Re-installed Java
stuff. Domino starts corectly.

You are right regarding bleeding edge. We also have Domino doing some
things that involved us begging IBM for the latest version and dowloading
PTF's from the web that were actually still being tested the first time I
looked at them. We were "prudent" and waited till they came out of testing.
I believe some websphere stuff is in the pipeline - so I can expect to
become incredibly familiar with IBM's Tech pages.

Having said that, you were also right when you said "This is an AS/400, not
an NT box" and I was disappointed to say the least that the machine hung up
like that. Sure, I didn't install something that Domino needed to run. Sure
thats dumb or careless or whatever you prefer. But (and it's a big but) my
experience has been that you were protected from having to take the drastic
kind of measures I took by the OS. When Domino started the OS should have
quietly informed me that something was missing and fallen over. Not halted
the machine.

Let's leave that kind of re-start mentality to the NT clowns.

Thanks for the feedback anyway.

Cheers
Evan Harris
