I run my development and test environments on RHEL AS 4, and have no
problems with the OS.  However, I install the rest of the software stack
- Postgres 8.2.x from the binary RPMs on
  (there's one little protection glitch in 8.2.5 -- note you need these:)
- Java 1.6 from Sun (
- Tomcat 5.5 direct from its online distro
- maven from

You'll need apache httpd as well, which ought to be available as an RPM
from redhat.  I've had no problems, but my sites don't get a lot of traffic..
