What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Go to

This link has the instructions

http://www.devx.com/webdev/Article/16416/0/page/1

You can also download any Sun free webserver for Windows . The below link has the other webservers list too.

All you need to do is install a windows version and run your JSP's  on it
