Can I download WAS (entry edition) to a machine running Windows 98 SE? My machine meets all the other requirements (memory, processor, etc.) except for the Windows NT 4.0 or higher OS.
I just want to familiarize myself with the product and experiment with it. Will it work?
I also currently have VAJ 3.5 (entry edition) installed and configured correctly to use the Websphere Test Environment for testing servlets and JSPs on my machine and I don't want to mess this up.
Thanks.

The documentation says that you can install WAS on Windows NT or Windows 2000. Nothing is stated on 98. Try your luck by installing it and see what happens.

Thanks, but no thanks. I'm not that brave. I'll wait until someone else tries it first. Right now, I'm happy using VAJ 3.5 and Websphere Studio 3.5 to test servlets/JSP in the Websphere Test Environment.

I did try to install on W98 but without any luck. I think there's a problem due to the fact that the Admin Server runs based on the IBM WS Admin service and W98 doesn't provide a way to support "services" in particular (that I know of anyway). Bottom line - it didn't work!
If anyone does get it to work, please let us know.
