WebAppCabaret is the only free jsp hosting with private jvm (it costs 70$ with other hosting companies) Furthermore the Support is very good.

Very much the man in form

Can't praise this ISP enough. Servlets, JSP and MySQL and its' all for free. Ideal if your just looking to try your Java server work on the web. Support is first class.

The best free service

Considering this service is free it seems unfair to complain, BUT... sometimes the server can be very slow to respond and serve up your webpage. Well hell! It's free!

I am using them for over 1 month for learning purposes and developed a few servlets with MySQL. Response is sometimes very slow, but otherwise I like it. Because of the slow response I graded them 4 instead of 5. I am going to purchase the basic service to get rid of ads (for $3.33/month) Zalek

Good luck getting support to respond

Tell you what...I had a context hosted by this site, and, sure it was free...but they deleted my context...out of the blue. And, guess what? There's no way to recover it. And, they don't care. I wrote them 3 emails over the last day trying to find out what happened, and finally, after being a little cross in the third email, they responded and told me my context was deleted....and "Sorry". Good job guys...wouldn't try them if I were you. Especially their pay service. Why pay for this kind of crap?

Don't do it

This company's staff is basically belligerent. Support is like calling an S&M hotline.
