How to host Java RESTful web services for Android applications
looking to develop a Java REST web service to work with the Android application I was also developing, I was struggling to find the best option to host the service, and everything I found seemed to put me in a different direction.
Can anyone give me advice on the best way to host Java REST web services? Can do Linux or Windows, familiar with lamp stack and IIS.
I recommend looking at Google App Engine for hosting and writing services in Java. I just set up some services in this way for the app I’m developing, it’s quick and easy, and at the moment it’s free but the usage is very limited.
