Alot will depend on the configuration of the as/400 and the code you are 
using.  What is the number of estimated concurrent users?

You can google for most tidbits and information, if you have a specific 
question the archives of this list are a good resouce, also there are 
numerous books on the subject, (which there are several lists of them if you 
serach the archive).  I would however offer one caveat settings, 
configurations and JVM/application optimizations are like finger prints, and 
so you can get ideas, but your going to have to see through trial and error 
what works for your specific application/hardware/software.

Tons ;)
