Hello,

I hope this is the right place to post the query Or should I have posted in JSP/Servlets ?.

I have a web site that uses JSP/Servlets/Java classes and Access DB. I got to host on a third part's web server. Third party is in hurry and I cant' find any site where I can host for free. SO,
Can I host the site in such a way that the code can't be visible to the third party. Actually its a demo for that party and don't wish them to copy the code.

Are you aware of any site where I can host my site for free. Its just for a demo purpose, for which I can't spends $'s.

I am kind of beginner-intermediate in web hosting, so please give proper steps.

Any help is highly appreciated.

Thanks

See http://faq.javaranch.com/java/ServletsFaq#hosting for some hosting companies that offer basic accounts for free.

If you're serious about doing web app development for profit, then I'd advise to get a decent account that you can use to deploy in public; they start at around $10 per month.

Moslty none of them provide access to MS Access connection. I got to transfer to MS SQL or better MySQL.

This purpose is purly for just demo; just want to see a devleoped project live running. Just a matter of 2-3 days for seeing the application.

Do you know any with MS Access connectivity.

Thanks

I doubt any hosting company offers Access, since that is unsuitable for concurrent access scenarios due to the ODBC/JDBC bridge. I advise to switch to some other database instead - maybe an embedded Derby or HSQLDB database so that no setup is needed.
