Has anyone tried using TowerJ in WAS. Can it be tried in WAS? If so, how effective it is.

I can guarantee with almost 100% certainty that it won't work. What's more, even if it by some miracle does, it will not be supported by IBM. The ONLY JVM that is certified to work with WebSphere is IBM's JVM (or, in the unique case of Solaris, Sun's with IBM's additions).

Kyle,
You mean to say that TowerJ JVM will not give us any performance gain compared to IBM JVM which comes in with WAS app server?
Thanks

Well, probably not. Our JVM features a VERY high performance JIT that has been shown in multiple studies to be as good or better than most compilers.
But that's not the issue. The issue is that TowerJ WON'T WORK. J2EE App Servers don't work with Compilers in general, and in particular, WebSphere doesn't work with any other JVM or Compiler. You can't use it.
