"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Ultimately, "Agile Methodology" refers to (as the name would indicated) a methodology, not a specific hardware or software vendor. It can be used with ANY hardware or software, right?

AS/400 / iSeries / i is not considered a mainframe.   It is typically considered a mid-range computer.  

As daveslash says, agile is about how you approach a development effort, and has nothing to do with the underlying platforms or technologies.

Here's a quick tutorial that explains what agile is, and how it compares to traditional "waterfall" development methodologies.
