No Tomcat/JSP Support, just JServ
Date: January 20, 2003
Reviewer: Christian Pich
They use JServ, an older (but more reliable) servlet engine.
Great Value ISP
Date: March 3, 2003
I've been with this ISP for a couple of years now. The features are ok for a low-cost site. They provide a lot of user-friendly goodies for developers just starting out with websites. Also, customer support and technical support are very responsive to emails, which is great. Overall, I'm a satisfied customer.
Some things to consider:
- The servlet engine (Jserv I think) seems to be outdated or a beta version or both, but it works. Curiously, the software hasn't been updated to handle JSP. I also had problems with null parameters from web forms in my servlets
- they would cause 500 errors. Once I changed my code to initialize each parameter as an empty string like this:
String param1 = ""+req.getParameter("param1");
The 500 Internal Server Errors stopped.
- They don't have a very convenient way to check or update billing info, which is sort of a drag, but customer support is very good at responding to emails.
Good until they were sold.

After they were sold, tech support would not answer "urgent" emails for days over complete outages.
As of today (April 30 2008), javapie, and their parents webhostingintl seems to be completely dark. Looks like they went out of business without any warning.
There is no excuse for that.
