I am using Linux j2sdk 1.4 with FreeBSD 4.5-stable in a production
environment along with

ant 1.4.1
FreeBSD Built Webapps.

So far I have not really had any problems and the performance is ALOT nicer
then Tomcat 3.2.3. Note I did NOT use any ports I simply installed the
Linux_base6* and then installed the binary versions of the above programs
and set the necessary paths in my .cshrc.

The only real tricky part was getting the to build from
source. Other then that I have had j2sdk1.4 core on me a few times and I
would be more then happy to send the future cores someone if they could help
me debug the problems further.

If I can be of any help just ask.
