If I set the run.conf java_home to JAVA_HOME="/j2sdk1.5.0" will jboss run off 1.5 instead of the environment variable
The JAVA_HOME value in run.conf will take precedence over the environment variable. So yes, JBoss will run on Java 1.5.
This is not a web app but an application. Is there anything that I have to be aware of that will cause me problems?
You mean its just a standalone application? Can you please provide more details about the application and what it does?

It is an IVR application on the syntellect platform. I am now going to convert the application to just 1.6 but need to run Jboss in 1.5 because the rest of my department is running Java 1.5 and most of our EJB's are using 1.5 and are EJB3.
