Java is one of our most popular features, and many users come to Heliohost specifically for the free .jsp/.war hosting so with that in mind we have installed Apache Tomcat 8.5.4 and Java 1.8.0_101-b13 on Tommy. As far as we know Heliohost is still the only truly free host in the world that provides free Java hosting without any gimmicks. If you can find someone else let us know. Our version of Tomcat was released 2016-07-12, and is the latest stable release. Our version of Java is also the latest and greatest. For comparison Johnny is running Tomcat 7, and Java 1.6.0 so Tommy is already much more up to date. Java will be enabled on Tommy user accounts on a first come first serve basis like we've always done, but since Tommy has twice as much memory as Johnny we'll be able to have a lot more Java enabled accounts at once so the wait list should be considerably shorter. We're also going to allow users to deploy two .war servlets instead of the one we allowed on Johnny. The reason is so people can have a production .war deployed, and also work on development .war at the same time.


We're really excited about our newest server, Tommy, and can't wait to get him up and fully operational. As we mentioned recently we're willing to give donors early closed beta access to create a Tommy account. The details of the offer can be found here http://www.helionet....my-closed-beta/ We'll keep you all updated on the state of the new server as he progresses, and as we get new features installed. If you have any questions or requests for Tommy feel free to ask. Thanks for being a member of the Heliohost community.
