I think there is FP Server Extension for Apache.

I used to successfully installed on older version of Apache.

There are a couple of links that you could take a look, and download the kit.

Some interesting discussion, a bit old though:

Shahid1,
As far as the claims made, it should be compatible.  Perhaps you might want to download the evaluation copy to have a feel.  Personally I does not have much experience on ASP.  I think must work, otherwise Sun would not be making the claim.

good luck.

They chill soft claim that it works well on apache like IIS but you cannot use COM as there is no COM like thing on LINUX but if you are using this on windows it will do upto some extent rest all is R&D
