It is possible to use a Windows web server to an IBM i Data Application Server. This is called a mixed multi-tier setup. For further details, refer to Considerations for Multi Tier Deployment Models. You may need to use this setup due to company policies or other reasons. One reason for a mixed multi-tier setup is if you wish to use the Publish RESTful Web Services enhancement, introduced in V14 SP2. This feature requires a Windows or Linux web server.
