I am doing a J2ME program where a MIDlet is sending a serach query and the servlet takes it and get the data from the databse and post it back to the MIDlet. I have written the servlet, but don't know how to test whether this is working or not. Now the problem is where to publish my servlet. Can I try it out in my local mechine, if can how. Or else is there a place where I can publish my servlet. A free hosting place I mean. Thanks in advance....

SCJP 1.4, SCMAD 1.0<br />SCWCD, SCBCD (in progress)

To run the servlet you need an web container (like tomcat) or any other J2EE application server like websphere,jboss,weblogic...etc we have so many in the market.

Tomcat is free.You can try that and get it from here and then you invoke your servlet through web browser.
