I am about to host my web application which was developed using Tomcat Apache Servlet engine, but the host is using Resin servlet engine. Am i still able to host my JSPs and JavaBeans and JDBC using RESIN??
Will i have any problems using Resin?
What do i need to change if im already using TOMCAT and i want to host my JSPs/JavaBeans using RESIN??

Resin is a J2EE compatible application server, just like Tomcat. So... in theory your application will run exactly the same on Resin as it did on Tomcat.
The only thing you have to do make sure that the version of Resin that your hosting company uses, supports the same JSP/Servlet spec as the version of Tomcat that you built your application on.
What I mean is... if you wrote your app using Tomcat 4 (JSP 1.2, Servlet 2.3) but the hosting company uses an application server that supports JSP 1.1 and Servlet 2.2 -- then things *might* not work right because of differences between the specifications.
You'll have to check with your hosting company for instructions on how to deploy web applications to their environment.
Also... in the future, you might want to post Resin questions in the Resin forum.
