I have developed a small web-based database program using servlets and ms-access. I have tested the same in my local machine. Now i would like to upload this application into a webserver.
I am not sure of what type web-hosting service to select. I find there are lot of free webhosting services.
Is it enough if the web-hosting allows me to upload my servlets ?can i upload my database to webserver ?
Please suggest how to deploy my application . Also suggest me a webserver where i can host it.

This is a tricky question with no easy answer. You will need either a "dedicated" server (expensive and potentially difficult to maintain) or an account with a hosting company which supports Java servlets and a compatible database.
Very few (if any?) of the free services support Servlets, and only a small number support any form of database. These are the sort of extras you have to pay for. Several lists of Servlet hosting companies have been posted to this forum, please search the stored topics.
