I created a web site on my computer using servlets and i was running it with jakarta tomcat. What i wanna know is if i can run the same web site, servlets and all, on a free web server like xoom or geocitites or whatever other free website available. If not , how could i run this site on the internet so others could access it. Thanks

What you have running on you PC is a full web application (.war file) in happnes to include servlets as well.
What you get from the free hosters, is a directory where you can put you .html files. You dont have access to the runing servlet engine, you can not add you web application...
You may want to look for a host for web applications.
