Hi guys,

I am completly newbie to servlets; and I just managed to run my first helloWorld servlet.


Q: say I want to run this online. how do I do that?
(I know how to publish html etc) but do i need to have something that supports servlets?

Thanks for any help

Yes, you need a servlet container. Tomcat is a popular and free choice.

Based on the link you posted (and that won't work for anybody else but you) I would guess you have Tomcat installed and running your new HelloWorld servlet. If that is the case take a look at this thread:

If you want to publish your work, you'll either need to find a hosting company that supports JSP or set up a Domain that points to your home/office.

The former will be the easiest.

Maybe you can publish your work on My Java Server site.

Correct me if I am wrong to understand your question

I use kgb internet and have been very happy with their reliability, speed, cost and support. It is something like $8 a month for running servlets.

The application that I run can be found by clicking the live demo link at - a fast, free open source performance tuning api.
