I have successfully run Java and WebSphere Standard Edition on a model 170 
2291 as a single user with no problem at all.  I was quite impressed by how 
well it coped.  I have 320MB of main store and would suggest you get as much 
main storage as you can afford -- certainly more than the standard (?) 64MB.  
As a development machine it is fine but I would not want to be running 
SanFransisco on it !! nor would I want to be running WebSphere Advanced 
Edition and EJBs.  I think my 170 would cope happily with 2 or 3 Java
