Code level lock-in is present when the hosting service requires you to code against their proprietary APIs and build on top of their proprietary platform.
Google App Engine is an example of deep code-level lock-in. It requires you to build your application in a very specific way tailored to their system. This can give you major advantages because itís very tightly integrated into the infrastructure, but youíre also completely tied to that platform.
