What alternatives are there to Google App Engine?
I would like to know if there is any alternative to Google App Engine. I have tried to use it with JPA, but it seems quite limited with the relationships and everything.
Any kind of DBMS would do, as long as it's not too limited
I found this post so I'm going to close the question
Stax Networks provides servlet hosting in the cloud. In a way it's like app engine but instead of "app engine apps" that use the special datastore, you deploy straight up servlets that use mysql databases you can create on demand. They have a nice graphical web-console. Each version you deploy gets tracked and you can roll back if you need to.
You can use JPA and whatever other frameworks you like. It's built on top of EC2, so you get fast access to any other AWS services you use. There is monitor that allows you to view application resource utilization and health, you can view all the logs. And you can have different environments like staging and production.
It's currently in beta test. I was approved for the beta test after a day or so.
The other question you reference is specifically about Python and AppEngine. You can't use Python on Stax Networks, although Jython and the other JVM languages are available like JRuby, coldfusion etc.
