running a java server application hosting online
Posted on 2006-11-30
I think i know the answer, but i want to confirm...
I have a server application, written with java sockets, (i.e. running on some port 13000), and I need to put it online, on the same server computer as my database.
So probably i need to use custom DNS, and unblock the port on my own computer. But i cannot run it on my own computer. Is there any company online that offers hosting where you can allow access to a port?
since this probably doesnt exist, how can i rewrite my program? with SOAP?
It receives a serialized file and puts the file's info in the database. so it has to be java. I don't know if Servlets can handle things like that.
