One can use VPS Hosting technology to host Java and run his own development server. In VPS Hosting you can either choose Windows VPS Hosting or Linux VPS Hosting. Both windows VPS as well as Linux VPS can be used for running a development server with Java. The only difference between windows VPS and Linux VPS is that windows VPS is based on GUI while Linux VPS is based on text commands. So it depends on the user as to which one he is comfortable with among windows VPS and Linux VPS.
You can very well host Java on a windows VPS or Linux VPS using VPS Hosting technology. Java is mainly used by developers for programming and helps software developers to write programs that are platform independent. When you use Java then you are no longer required to run your programs on the server. You can run each program as an applet in the browser.
Java can be run on a virtual server very well but there are some issues with the licensing on Java2, so it becomes a little difficult to install it. You are not required to be a genius in order to do so and can install it by following a certain set of technical commands.
Here are the steps which you should follow:
1. Firstly you must register Sun.com software. Once you have done this, then you can download the latest version of Java. You should also create a directory first where you can install the new downloaded Java file.
2. The next step you need to follow is that you should download the Linux JDK. This you can do from Java Sun web apps pages and download it. Then you need to copy this to the directory you just created.
3. Now once you have moved both your files to the directory that has been created on the VPS then you can install Java. For this you will have to run a simple command as root once you are prompted for VPS v2 shell. The command will be
This can take a while for installing your Java. Once this has been done then you are left with one last step in which you have to add a new path to VPS v2 shell. You can also point to a path in your Java program.
So overall we can say that you should always host Java on a virtual server from a very reliable and a secured VPS Hosting provider that has a good reputation. This is very important for your Java application to run safely and very efficiently. You must make your selection of your hosting provider very carefully as each host is different from the other and has a different expertise. Also you must select a plan with a huge bandwidth and disk space.
