The question is whether running a(nother) JVM on a production machine, let
us say running Oracle/DB2/Informix/OraApps/Peoplesoft/SAP/apache/etcetera,
_is_ an issue or not.

The JVM would be runiing while the machine is running.  Basically we are
talking abount adding another system daemon which happens to be written in
Java to the system.
