Web Applications Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for power users of web applications. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have very limited knowledge of web development yet I was given the task of creating a website for a product I am working on. To that end I have created a website on Google sites.

The product is written (mostly) in Java and I would like to demonstrate some of its features in the website. Basically, I need to run a certain Java function on input that is taken from a form in the website. I have tried using Java applets but it seems like this doesn't work with Google Sites (see my question here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10306127/embedding-java-applets-in-a-google-sites-website).

I was wondering whether there's another option anyone may think of? Alternatively, if Java applets are the only way to do this - is there any other (hopefully free) web hosting service that would allow me to run Java applets without too much pain?

An alternative could be to use Java Web Start in order to show some functionality of your application.

I looked at some examples of this but it seems really cumbersome - I didn't even realize the application was starting. Besides, I want it to be integrated in the site without popping windows or too much interference on the user side. –  smichak Apr 25 '12 at 10:14
