Hello,
I successfully ran RAP 1.5 application on Websphere 8.5. Article http://wiki.eclipse.org/RAP/Running_RAP_on_WebSphere describes RWT application on WAS, but I've deployed RAP application including org.eclipse.rap.ui (+org.eclipse.rap.ui.workbench), so I wanted to share it.

The biggest problem was org.eclipse.core.runtime bundle. On Equinox download page Equinox 3.7 contains org.eclipse.core.runtime 3.7, which requires org.eclipse.osgi 3.7. Equinox 3.6-3.6.2 does not contain it at all. I downloaded Eclipse IDE 3.6 which contains org.eclipse.core.runtime 3.6. I added it to my bundle list, created an EAB file and deployed. The rest is the same as in http://wiki.eclipse.org/RAP/Running_RAP_on_WebSphere.

BTW, some other bundles are also little older.

Here is APPLICATION.MF - you can see I'm using rap.ui.workbench:

Application-Name: hello.workbench.app
Application-SymbolicName: hello.workbench.app
Application-ManifestVersion: 1.0
Application-Version: 1.0.0.qualifier

org.eclipse.equinox.http.embedded.web;version=1.0.0,
org.eclipse.rap.rwt.osgi,
hello.rap.workbench;version=1.0.0

hello.rap.workbench is a very simple RAP project with following entry point:
public class HelloEntryPoint implements IEntryPoint {

	public HelloEntryPoint() {
	}

	public int createUI() {
		Display display = PlatformUI.createDisplay();
		WorkbenchAdvisor advisor = new ApplicationWorkbenchAdvisor();
		return PlatformUI.createAndRunWorkbench(display, advisor);
	}

}


I also tried to run demo from RAP (org.eclipse.rap.demo + org.eclipse.rap.demo.branding + org.eclipse.rap.design.example) but I got following error:
[30.09.12 21:33:45:504 CEST] 00000086 SystemErr R Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException

Oh, I forgot to mention that WAS runs on org.eclipse.osgi 3.6, and org.eclipse.core.runtime 3.7 (inside Equinox 3.7), 3.8 (inside Equinox 3.8 ) requires 3.7/3.8 of org.eclipse.osgi.
