AS/400 dev path - new I5/520 - old web is html,Ihtml,Cold Fusion,Javascript,RPG

I need to choose the best development path. I am converting from one AS400 to another. The RPG apps will remain the same. The current web server is running on a WIN2003 server. I need to migrate that to the Apache server on the AS400. We use a kludge of code from html, Ihtml, Cold Fusion, and Javascript. I think I would like to go to Websphere, but am not sure. I don't know how to load Cold Fusion on the AS400 Apache server, much less maintain it. I definitely would like to get away from Ihtml.

Go to Websphere.
You are far more likely to find fast professional help in Java than in RPG-CGI or in Net.Data which are your only alternatives to Java.
You will have to convert the code from CF and iHTML to Java - the Javascript and HTML will remain pretty much the same.
