I think you might not be able to find any. Webappcabaret is a very good deal, and almost all others charge a fee. This is especially true if you wish to use any Microsoft software, because the site administrators have to pay licencing fees to Microsoft.
If you use JDBC for your database, it's really worth switching from MS Access (which is slow and not very powerful) to MySQL (which is very fast and free) or something like (PostgresSQL which is quite fast, free and very powerful). Changing to a new database is usually just a matter of changing the driver and login details in your database access code; everything else should be the same.
