Servlets in the cloud?

I am developing my first servlet based app that has a Postgresql database and will soon be ready for it to go live.

I had envisioned launching it through a web hosting service that had tomcat (as my IDE uses) but I also wish to explore 'cloud' options such as amazon.

Is it possible to host standard servelt/database application in the 'cloud'? If so, what would be a good book or website to explain to a beginner how it is done?

I have been searching the internet for a while but cannot seem to find anything; perhaps I am asking the wrong questions.



when in doubt put it in parenthesis and stick a dollar sign in front of it, only good can come from this.

AFAIK, of course it can be hosted in cloud. Cloud hosting service is not that different from normal web hosting service. It just have scalable resources when you need it and you pay for what you really use.

I don't have experience about cloud so I cannot suggest you a good read though.
