Java Web Hosting Options Flowchart

One question I get asked a lot, is where and how to host your Java web application. It’s all fine to create it inside Eclipse with an embedded server, but how do you get it to the people? For a long time, there was no answer for enthusiast programmers. There were only expensive and way oversized options. Things have changed lately, but it’s still not an easy choice.

Therefore I have created a small flowchart that will try to guide you in the maze.
