Dave Johnson on open web technologies, social software and Java
Jeff Duska wrote in to tell me about CQhost Web hosting. It looks like they might have what I need too: Servlet 2.3 support, MySQL, and domain name registration all for $19.95. They include the domain name thing, but they don't offer a dedicated Java VM and they use Caucho Resin instead of Tomcat. Tomcat is the butta-bomb of course, but Resin supports the Servlet 2.3 API so, in theory, it should work fine with Roller. Jeff plans on running a Roller-based weblog at CQHost, so maybe I should just lurk and learn.
