    Default java hosting

    Hi there!!

    I have developed a concurrent Java socket and I need to upload it somewhere. Do you know any free hosting for java programs? I would need to upload the executable jar.

    Thank you very much!

    Free? Unlikely. Even commercial shared hosts typically do not support Java. Running Java on a server usually requires a dedicated host.

    You could always host it yourself.
    Get in the habit of using standard Java naming conventions!

    Hi kjkrum, thank you for your answer. About a dedicated host, I have heard about Amazon EC2. I have signed it but find quite difficult to use. Do you know a good dedicated host, although it is not free?

    Thank

    I have shared hosting at A2. I have never had a need for a commercial dedicated host, so I can't recommend one. I've hosted small projects myself at home.

    Out of interest: what setup do you have? Special kit, or just your work machine which you keep running always?

    I've been considering some options myself and I've the limitation that I don't want to keep a full-blown computer running 24/7, I need something with a low energy footprint. the most economical one I've come up with so far is to get some sort of low-power barebone and stick that in a closet somewhere.

    Yes that was another option, one that I didn't immediately took too because it is a little gadgety :)

    I'll put that on the list to research.

    It will instantly set your geekery level to the max. Imagine the following conversation on the next party:

    - Guest: "What's that shiny little box with blinking lights over there?"
    - Gimbal2: "Oh, that's my Raspberry Pi with custom concurrent Java sockets. It controls the entire internets"
    - Guest: "Wow, can you explain to me how it works?"
    - Gimbal2: "No, you wouldn't understand. And besides, if you knew, I'd have to kill you"
    - Guest: "..."
    - Gimbal2: "Drink?"

    he he he :) Nobody will see that though, I'm going to stick it somewhere where I don't see it myself ;)

    To prove I am already a master-geek, that little sketch reminds me of an episode of the IT-crowd where they persuade the manager that they have 'the internet' in a tiny black box which she can borrow.

    Nothing special. I used to have an old Dell workstation running Linux that I used as a router and firewall. I also ran a LAMP stack on it.

    Right 'o. I think the Raspberry Pi idea is really the way to go; small, cheap, strong 'nuff and documented too. And that makes it perhaps a nice idea for the OP too (just finding an excuse to make my hijack on-topic)
