H Paul,

Yes in terms of the logging and connection pooling I had that problem and so 
I implemented the commons database pooling and use log4j to do my logging.

Sorry it wasn't so clear for you....

Review of

I made the mistake of selecting a Shared VM trial thinking I could get way 
with it but I couldnt.
I managed to get my basic application running, although deployment was a 
very hit a and miss affair, Tomcat Manager didnt work properly  and I didnt 
receive satisfactory explanations of what was going on. But I wanted to 
implement database connection pooling and changes to the tomcat logging and 
this was not possible so I requested an upgrade to a trial to a private JVM, 
but was told only one trial per customer is allowed.

At least they give a free trial but Im checking out and deciding on someone else to try.
