Tomcat Hosting

Postby rafig » Thu Jun 11, 2020 6:11 pm

Hi all, hope everyone is staying safe & well...
I am looking in to Tomcat Hosting providers in UK and found this company/service
https://www.itanets.co.uk/tomcat-hosting.html
I thought I would pay up for a month to give it a try (as they don't offer a trial, but do refunds...)
They have a few interesting ways of doing things
1) WAR files need to be 'unpacked' & folder copied over (no auto expansion/deployment)
2) a request has to be made to 'deploy' solution
3) they have Tomcat's security manager enabled
I copied over a WAR folder (from a Servoy WAR export without solution) and it has thrown an error that I think is caused by point (3)
The error is
Code: Select all
java.security.AccessControlException: access denied ("java.lang.RuntimePermission" "setContextClassLoader")

I'm not a Tomcat/WAR expert [although I have manage to deploy Tomcat based solutions on a Mac server] but I'm not sure what this error is or how to solve it.

I have 2 questions
1) does anyone know what this error means & how I can 'fix' it (does Servoy work with Tomcat's security manager enabled?) ??
2) OR, [other than using an AWS instance] does anyone know/recommend a UK cheap & easy Tomcat hosting provider (client does not have much money) [this provider has very good pricing...] ??

Thanks

Hi Rafi,

I have three accounts with Tomcats at Brightbox.com. They are more expensive but more flexible.
No workarounds to use the Tomcats, they set up what you want. Rather than using cloud SQL, one client has a local PostgreSQL on a 2GB linux server to save money - their DB is small.
Brightbox have set up Tomcats for both Smart Client and NG-Client -- soon NG-Client only ;-)
