Creating a JSP site remotely

I am new to doing projects and was wondering if I have clients who are remote what are the considerations of creating a database driven website? One of my recent clients was in Georgia (and I am in California) but they just needed a static website on a shared server. They paid for the account and just handed me the password so to speak. Is this standard practice? I just wanted to know if I am missing something.
What if they have their own server? Would it be inappropriate for me to have them download Java, Tomcat, and MySQL? That seems like a lot to ask of some IT challenged clients.
I feel comfortable working with MySQL, JSP, Java, and HTML so if I do go ahead with such endeavors I will obviously recommend shared hosts with these features (JSP and MySQL).
Thanks for any feedback.

for a small single site yes

i don't think thats an unreasonable requirement. you could do it for them if they give you the root password for that server

That sounds like fun to me! I'm pretty busy these days (JSP on Tomcat stuff mostly, but not using MySQL much), but I might would do some grunt work for you on that or any other remote client for the fun of it (few hours per week or month). We have our servers at a co-lo, so we just VNC into them and it's not too annoying to work on them that way (and it's cheap). Anyway, that's why I'm posting this--to recommend Ultra VNC. If you can get them to download that, then you can download the rest for them.
