Does anyone know of a place where we can place out wml, jad, and jar files for a really cheap price (Free), so that we can download them to our phones?
A guy at work has his own IIS server, but he doesn't know how to allow it to handle .jad files. The WML works fine, it just can't download the jad file to allow installation to occur.
Thanks guys
Mark

As far as I know the PCSpix allows to upload .BMP/.JPG/.PNG images, .MID/.QCP/.MMF/.PMD ring tones, and .JAD/.JAR application files...
They got several membership, according to the number of uploads per month...
Here it is...

This is really a matter of setting the correct MIME types. I do not suppose IIS would have the JAR/JAD MIME types in its default config file. Tomcat does, however. So you can use Tomcat out of the box as an OTA server. Apache is also very easy to setup for OTA.

I am not also so sure about the M$ to support Sun's tech in its server... And I also do not know before that Tomcat can be used as OTA server, even though I've been using Tomcat for years... Now it's in version 5 and the configuration and everything got improved... I personally like Tomcat for testing JSPs and Servlets....

Try MyCGIServer - its FREE!
Contrary to its name, it is a Java-based (i.e., Servelts/JSP) web application server.

Thanks Guys.
Stephen. I went to CGI before and they are saying that they aren't taking any new memberships there. I will try pcspix.com.
Michael, while I owuld love to do this myself and have my own web server on the net, I don't have those resources available to me right now. Maybe later down the road. I just wanted something quick and easy that I could do today to see my App on a cell phone.
Thanks
Mark

Wow, that's ashame. It's been up for years as a free service, but I guess costs have driven them to eliminate "free" and replace it with a (minimal) cost structure instead. Still a pretty good bargain at ~$2.50/month for what they offer. I'll definately subscribe.

Stephen, PCSpix.com got free membership as well... You might want to have a look on that site...
I got a member but I don't use it frequently...

That's because mycgiserver had reached a financial dead-end. Fortunately, it seems that JavaLobby.org came to rescue

I've just read that news and I think they are emphasizing more on J2EE stuff..... But PCSpix.com is more on J2ME stuff...
I would thank you for the info about J2EE free hosting... I am interested in it, JavaLobby.org...
