I have created a Java Chat Server, now where do i put it?
Hello, this is my first post on this forum.
Using NetBeans i have created a Java desktop application, a ChatServer, i packed the classes in a jar file and if i launch it on windows i can see the JAVA GUI opening and tracing all the incoming connection. The client is made in Flash, i have already tried in local and it works. I connect it to 192.168.0.2 to access to the java server i have made.
Now i want to put my ChatServer.jar online somewhere, so that i can use it with people outside my lan.
What do i have to do? i have checked VPS or Dedicated server, but they are too expensive for a simple chat like this.
There is something cheaper?
I have bought a "Shared JVM" from Mochahost.com but i am not sure if i did the right thing. i have no clue what is tomcat or what is a servlet jsp...
Can someone explain me what to do?:confused:
