View Full Version : Webhosting for Apache/Tomcat + Oracle XE

05-28-2007, 07:26 PM
I'm working on a project with a couple of developers and the application is being written in jsp with Oracle XE (the express free edition) as the backend database.
The app/web being used is apache/tomcat. Is there any cheap webhost which offers tomcat + Oracle XE support..?
I've checked quite a few and they seem to largely offer two types of hosting:
1) Windows based with Frontpage/ASP+MSAccess on IIS
2) Unix/Linux based with PHP+MySQL on Apache (but no Tomcat)

Can someone please help.....
Thanks for all your suggestions/advice

I don't think you'll find any 'cheap' web host offering Oracle. It's like asking if there's a local cheap rental car company offering any Rolls Royces ;-)

:) I know, unfortunately, the guy I'm working with is a purely java guy, hence jsp/tomcat. The oracle XE db I agree is a very difficult choice and we may have to either switch to Mysql or make my pc online to show everything working. However, I don't think jsp/tomcat is that unusual. There's a lot of middleware development being done on java, it may not be as much as asp.net or php but its still quite popular..... dont you think ?
