What exactly to you mean by Java hosting?

Well, the two features I really need are the ability to run Java apps
(webapps or otherwise), and to have shell access (so I can manage the
app's data directories).

You want to run a Java app in the server? I'm not sure what you mean by

A Java web app usually mean a war running in a servlet container.

And a servlet would require Tomcat or something like it on the
webserver? Do you need JavaEE to create servlets or on the server?

Well known standalone servlet containers are Tomcat and Resin.

Any full Java EE app server contains a servlet container.

Servlet/JSP/JSF are a subset of Java EE.

"Java web app" seems as common a term as "PHP web app" or
"ASP.NET web app" to me.

I've run Java programs on my computer before that acted as a server.
Managing them was a little difficult without creating a control
mechanism but they worked fine.

It is certainly possible to run Java SE servers.

Usually that means a a socket server with a custom
protocol not HTTP.
