running java app on server?
I am making a chat feature on a android app(android doesnt really have to do with it) and i want to have a main server and the clients. I have done a server/client thing before and ran them both on different computers before, but i want to the server app on a host so the client can connect to it anytime. So my real question is that can you run a java application on a server and connect to it form a client? Or do i have to use something else like java EE. do know it thought
Thanks in advance

There is a confusion here for me. You earlier said:I have done a server/client thing before and ran them both on different computers before

sorry i didnt explain it better. i was saying that a made a server app and a client app and tried it out on two computers. so you had to run the server app every time the clients wanted to connect to it. I was wondering if there was a host or server where you can put the app on it and keep it running so the clients can connect to it anytime. cause im trying to put a chat feature in my app. its on android so all people could talk to each other all the time.

Sorry, I thought you were asking a programming question.
I was wondering if there was a host or server where you can put the app
I don't understand what this has to do with Advanced Java???

Sorry, no idea where the best fit would be.
What do you find with Google with server hosting?

its all right.
i looked on google and saw hosting sites for jsp and tomcat servers and stuff like that. i dont know jsp or tomcat stuff but i was hoping for something that i can connect to the server and enter the chat server port number. like xxx.xxx.x.x:4000, but it would do that in java of course. And then it would connect to the chat server.
