HI, This is a general doubt regarding the jsp hosting services. I just finished my jsp and j2ee before months. I find that on the internet there a only a few jsp and java hosting services, and most of them are not free hosting services.
My search acording to google relates
1.80% of Jsp hosters are paid and commercial 2.60% of hosters(difficult to find) are J2ee hosting and not a single of them is free 3.Java and jsp hosting with j2ee is costliest (i have FOUND ONLY 1 jsp free hosting site)
(correct me if i am wrong on the above )
my doubt is that 1. java is opensource 2. java is platoform independent 2. many j2ee cotainers are available which are very productive and easy to install and more over opensource 4.most of all, the leading apache project supports java, jsp and more frameworks with plugins and support
prior to above what i have found from blog survey that about 61% hosting in IIS(windows) are 1.free hosting 2.24x7 available 3.from asp.net TO all scripting languages supported(even php) 4.and disadvantages of iss which i dont want to introduce
ques 1. then why is jsp,java so costly and no flexible options are available ques 2. even though it has more advantages from developing to maintenece why do none of them host jsp,java. Is there any technical fact or any webguru fact I am missing or should be knowing .
Please share any information pertaining to this. Thaking you everyone.
Hosting web sites costs the people who provide it money - why would it be free to you? It's a very different proposition to run an application server for hosting Java, than to run something like GeoCities for free where the company doing it gets to put ads on your pages.
Solid Java hosting is available for as little as $10 USD per month. If the application isn't worth that much, maybe you should reconsider if it's worth putting it online at all.
And I very much doubt that you'll find good IIS hosting for free. Please share whatever sources you have on that subject.
Free sites serve static pages, and if you are lucky lets you run a free small php scripts. More then that you have to pay for.
A good way to go is virtual hosting, that gives you root access. That way I can run what I like, and if I want to try different frameworks it is easy. The better one will have JSP, Rails, etc installed by default. It is a bit more then shared hosting but is worth it. It is a great development platform.
I use RailsPlayground( guess what they specialize in?) and get a lot of disk space, choice of OS, lots of toys installed, can also use traditional LAMP, JSP, run custom socket apps, great support, and a ton of bandwidth for like $28 a month or so.
