Thanks. The FAQs talk about how Google App Engine can host your Java application but I want to know if Google App Engine is a web host? If it is, what is the difference between Google App Engine and other traditional web hosts? Also, will I be forced to use a Google-like URL or will I be able to use any URL to access my website hosted on Goggle App Engine?
Thanks again. I have a clearer picture of what Google App Engine is about. Am I correct in assuming that if I have a serious eCommerce website, the average Java web host will do a must better job of hosting it since it does not have as many restrictions as Google App Engine. The difference is that I'll have to pay for hosting.

You may be correct, but you may also be wrong. It's not a better or worse kind of hosting, it's a different kind of hosting. Whether the restrictions make it better or worse in your situation depends on your requirements (about which we know nothing). And GAE is certainly not free.
