    Hi.  IBM only has the Java(TM) Plug-In and WebStart(TM) for their x86 JRE/JDK for Linux; you can double-check this in the docs - I am going from memory.  There was a previous thread about the IBM JRE/JDK that included discussion of this a few months back on this list.  
    If they did have these facilities for PowerPC and you wanted it to behave like the Sun JRE/JDK handles .jnlp files on their supported architectures, one additional requirement would be updating the shared-mime-info database to execute javaws when .jnlp files are attempted to be launched.
