Runing WAS 5.1 with IBM's JDK 1.5

On Windows, IBM's WAS 5.1 comes with IBM's JDK 1.4.2.
Is it possible to change JDK and run WAS 5.1 with IBM's JDK 1.5.0?
I tried, but get errors at the startup. I realize that this is not supported by IBM, but expect to get some performance improvement with this newer JDK.

nope.  The directory structure used by the 1.5 JDK is sufficiently different that it would require you to find, and change all of the references to environment variables (e.g., CLASSPATH)

HonorGod,

Thank you for the comment. This confirms what I have found so far.

I will leave this question open for a little longer in case someone has something to add, and if nobody has anything to say, I will mark your comment as the answer.
