You won't. A couple of free servlet/JSP hosts exist, but for an app server you'll have to spend money.

Joe,

That link is not helpful on my requirements, as I need an application server. I can search on Google to find many. But I need the cheapest and trusted provider. Please help.

Did you scroll down the page to the question "What are some web hosting companies that support servlets/JSP?". That sounds exactly what you are looking for.

Joe, it seems you missed the point. I'm finding for application server. The list contains Servlet/Jsp providers. Most of the Servlet/Jsp hosting providers are do not provide an application server like Glassfish, which can be used to host EJB applications. Hope you understand what I need Please help.

Note: Evolutionhosting is too much expensive for me.

I think you missed the point. I just browsed the first 10 links in that list and 6 have J2EE application server plans (JBoss or Glassfish).
As for pricing, given that small sample size, it looks like a J2EE server is going to run $30-50 a month.

Oh! Thanks Joe. I thought there are only "Servlet/Jsp providers as the topic said.
Why those servers are very expensive? $50 per month.!

Expensive compared to what? That's what a typical plan costs, others may cost slightly more or less. For example, I'm paying USD 17 for a plan that includes an app server, and am happy with it, even though it's a bit skimpy on hard disk space.

It's WebAppCabaret. I've been hosting with them for years, and am quite happy with their service.

Is it http://www.WebAppCabaret.com ?
But I couldn't find a plan for 17$. Their cheapest plan is $49 per month

Search a little bit harder; it's called the "Professional" plan.

Take a look at OpenShift.com.
https://openshift.redhat.com/app/

You can deploy applications to JBoss AS 7.
You are given 1,5 GB RAM and 3 GB of space.
You can have MySQL, SQLite, PostgreSQL, MongoDB...
You can have Cron scripts.
You can connect anywhere from the server.
You get SSH access (not root, though).

Definitely, give it a try.
