hosting providers exploiting me HELP!

I have run through a few hosting providers in the last week because they keep feeding me a bunch of bs.

1)I am not impressed with the level of service so far and currently only out of, eapps and impressed me. I had to leave eapps because they could not point out why my authentication was failing. I was using same context.xml and tmcat version in development with exact same database and table names in development. They were quick to point fingers at programatic error because it is faar to easy to point fingers elsewhere. I quickly argued that authentication could not be programmatic error when mapping is correct (especially in this case) because authentication is done purely by the container.

No without boring you, I need a hsting recommendation that actually gives you what you ask for and even better has a aupport team that can understand xml config so that they do more than point fingers. It is too easy to pint fingers when you can't even show the error.

I had a sneaky hunch that container was set up wrong as none of my resource accessing tomcat config was succesfull. Luckily there was hibernate worksround bypassing for my appluication needs but as you may be aware authentication does not really have a substitute like hibernate. In fact, I will even forward my application and schema to prove that it is correct to anyone in doubt.

I need you recommendations please

The ServletsFaq lists quite a few Java hosting providers, and if you search the Servlets forum you'll find multiple discussions in which various of those have been recommended.
I agree. Here's the link:
