Hello,

i am currently working on a webservice that returns rdf/xml. it is coded in java and uses jax-ws. i have used tomcat to test it locally. now i would like to put it on the internet to make it accessible through it. now i am looking for cheap and reliable hosting for my needs. it is not a lot of code that will be needed to be hosted. i have taken a look at http://www.javaservlethosting.com/java_web_hosting_plans.jsh and thought that might work, but since i have absolutely no experience with this i thought i might ask first. i just need a server on that tomcat runs and i can access my application like http://.../myapplication/myclasses... like i would on my localhost.

greetings
Sven

I know nothing of that particular company, but some providers that folks here have recommended over time are listed at http://www.coderanch.com/how-to/java/ServletsFaq#hosting.

I really know nothing about them. At a quick glance, they look in similar in features and price to DailyRazor, which is where I host some Java REST WS of mine.

At a quick glance I can't see how much memory they would allocate to the Tomcat - a crucial number, IMO. Make sure it's at least 128 MB.

When I chose hosting I was also looking for web and mail hosting, so there were some additional considerations and features I wanted which may not apply to you.
