Subject Re: Tomcat/Plesk datasource setup problems
Date Wed, 03 Oct 2007 19:26:40 GMT
Costs - the only way I can get a private Tomcat JVM in
South Africa, is dedicated hosting. Ie, renting a
complete machine. Costs are about 10x as much as
shared VM.

As I said, I have a private VM at a US based account
and it works beautifully, but in South Africa (where
the app MUST be hosted), we do not have that option
without very high costs.
