Most Linux software doesn't have published hardware requirements - those are usually fictions anyway. The question is: what do you want to build?

If you want a development workstation, you can probably get by with a 300 Mhz Pentium and 128M of RAM - but it won't be very fast. If you want an industrial-grade Web server, plan on more power and much more memory. Money spent on memory will always pay off - Java can be very memory-intensive.

To come up with meaningful requirements, you're going to need to understand what your application needs. With your configuration, your servlets, your Web pages, and so on, perform load-testing and gather data. From that, you can begin to understand what you'll need to meet your Web-serving demands.
