Hi,
I donno whether this is the right forum to discuss this topic or not... but i must say I need answers... thanks in advance
I have my j2ee web application to be accessible to world wide web, I have currenlty installed my ear file in the WAS5 server. My database is oracle 10g.
I'm aware that one has to take space on web for hosting the website... Does that space includes installing the WAS Server and database dump I'm confused... pls enlighten me...

Quite frankly, you are in the wrong forum. This forum is for portals and portlets. I will move this to the general computing forum for you.

I'm aware that one has to take space on web for hosting the website...



There is no black magic here. If you need a DB for your application, your hosting company needs to provided it. If you need a particular application server, then your hosting company needs to provide it. When you talk to your hosting company, you have to discuss the services, in addition to the space provided.

Thanks for the reply Henry, So you mean all the hardware/OS on which the application run will be provided by the Service provider? My application runs on unix envirnment. Do you mean a similar environment will be set for my application by the service proivder? Can't I make my application accessible to internet from my own machine? May be asking the Service proivder to pass the firewall or something...

There is a difference between a hosting provider and an ISP. Your original question was asking about getting your application hosted on the web. In this second case, sure... you can pay to get an internet connection -- maybe extra to (1) register a domain which will point to your IP address and (2) allow you to have a higher bandwidth to service requests. You are responsible for maintaining the services, including the web server, app server, DB, etc. yourself.

you can host it if you have a decent internet connection at home. if exposing your web application is only on a short duration or temporary...then you could simply give your audience your service provider assigned ip address. but if you intend to keep this for a while and if you have a dynamic ip assigned by your internet provider you may want to use no-ip (no-ip.com). it keeps your domain name in-sync with your ip address at home. if you use a router, you may have to configure it and open up a port to your web application or you can re-route the port 80 (which is the default internet port) to whatever port number your web application uses in your machine like 9080.
