JFS goes farther back than that...

IBM has a JFS web site at developer works that describes the complete
history. As I understand it, the original JFS came from AIX. IBM
ported some of the JFS code to add the journaling capabilities of JFS
to the HPFS32 file system on Warp Server in 1999. It was as you say
the Warp Server code that was ported to Linux.
