Hi,
I am about to write my project in a cloud. The question is which service I should choose for Java Server Pages? Which one is faster/better/easier to use? Do you have any experience with those services?
If I choose Google, would be possible to move to other hosting provider in the future?

I have using Google App Engine. It works fine for JSP. I am just using the free account. Sometimes the first request takes awhile because my app has to be restarted.  I think moving to another provider should be no problem.

There is no best or worst service provider. It will vary based on your application.
Google App Engine, provides a PaaS solution which may not be best suited for migration.Although Google uses jdo for persistance which is standard, I will suggest using IaaS based solution like Amazon if you need migration capabilities. This also gives you freedom for using persistance frameworks like hibernate. You can use Amazon Elastic Beanstalk to quickly create a tomcat based hosting. This gives you freedom to migrate to any other platform using your own.

brain_box makes some good points. I was just talking about JSP in relation to migration. GAE uses DataNucleus where the most common persistence platform is Hibernate.

@ rrz@871311, on a different note, you can use the load-on-startup to 1 to avoid the 'first request' delay.
There is one 'Always On' feature as well but that comes at a price :-)
Refer: http://code.google.com/appengine/docs/java/config/appconfig.html#Using_a_load-on-startup_Servlet

Thanks, brain_box, but we were talking about JSP here and I do want to keep it free. Most of the time the wait isn't too bad.
