Best web hosting server recommendation...

Hey guys,

I have a web application that includes: java/jsp, struts, spring, and hibernate. For development, I used a IBM's trial Websphere server.

However, to publish the web application on a host server, I'm wondering what's the best web server to use. It looks like Websphere server is very very expensive.

Does anyone have suggestions on affordable and good performing web servers? The hosting companies I called suggested Tomcat and Resin. I've never used these.

I would appreciate your insights...

The Servlet FAQ has a list of Java hosting companies. They mostly support Tomcat, Resin and/or JBoss (those being the major open source servlet containers). WebSphere is a commercial product, and so any hosting plan that offers it will be significantly more expensive.
