Hi,

I've been converting a web application to use Hibernate. Its been a haul, but in the end I think it will be worth it.

The problem now is that the people who I have used to host my web site in the past don't allow the use of many frameworks, including Hibernate.

Can anyone recommend a hosting agency that I can use that allows the use of Hibernate?

Thanks in advance,
Skip

My website uses Hibernate and the hosting service is oblivious to it.

All you need is a hosting service that uses Tomcat. Look in the Servlets and JSP forum faq for a listing of Tomcat/Java hosting services with a database backend, which is usually MySQL.

If they use Tomcat, and provide a Java 5 runtime environment, you just deploy your war, including the Hibernate jar files and drivers, and your application will work. Your provides doesn't need to know, or care, that you use Hibernate.
