Where to put servlets
I have recently started working on HTTP servlets for my site but the hosting company I have does not allow Java servlets on my hosting plan. In the interest of saving money, I have a not so old computer I would like to use as my application server. I noticed that when I use platforms like Apache Tomcat and Glassfish, the instructions run them from an IDE. Will I always have to have the IDE running for my servlets to work or is there such a thing as standalone operation.
