    You can run jRDC2 on the same computer that runs the database server. It can be Linux, Mac, PC, Raspberry Pi or any other computer that supports Java.

    What if the database was hosted on a remote computer as a part of website hosting plan and I want to fetch data from that database by jRDC2 ?

    Shared hosting will not work. You need a VPS to run jRDC2.

    There are exceptions.
    I am using a Hosting Provider where i can configure the MySQL-Database(s) to be accessible from outside. This can used to directly access the Database using jdbcsql (which is not recommended). If you need to use jrdc2 you need to have a PC/VPS running.

    But i agree: Most providers does not support it so a VPS is the solution here.

    This is not enough if you want to run jRDC2 on your server directly.

    Sorry, my comment was meant regarding mysql-access only (and the use of jdbcsql then).

    typically u can use php or asp.net at server side to provide data by http request. Lib OkHttpUtils2 can do this requests for download & upload.
    jRDC2 is much better to access Data and a VPS is more expensive than web hosting.
