Shouldn't do. They can be invoked separately. Just make sure that IBM doesn't insert itself into the path before the other one

There is no entry from IBM java runtime environment 1.4.1 in the path variable. nore is there an entry from j2re1.4.2_03.

Well then there shouldn't be a problem. Just specify the full path to the relevant executable when you want to run either
