I heard from ex-java developer saying they can deploy a java web app on a laptop that functioned as a server. So user can login the app like within a network(intranet) or open internet, and test their app. And the developer can keep on developing on the
same laptop; but not on the live deployed version of course.
Personally, I think this is cheap, kinna silly, and a waste of time as this is a small app as it is. The laptop I was given is new and just about one of the fastest one there is now but its slow enough for some reason. Pains me to wonder how it would work
while someone is login in my laptop while I try to develop. None of my previous position require me to do this. All of them have a real server for testing. But they pays me, so I need your help. If it slows down development, they'll just have to pay me for
the extra time.

Well, one thing right off you are going to run into is XP web server has a maximum limit of 10 concurrent user connections. However, there is a free product called Cassini that will give you a fully functional asp.net 4 web server.
www.ultidev.com They even have a SDK that will let you deploy the portable web server with your application.

Thanks for your response.
Didn't know about XP's 10 concurrent limit. I don't expect more than 2-3 users anyway. Not sure if I actually have the time to do it now as we have a demo to present and by then we'll have the server set up-hopefully. Is there a steep learning curve on this
open source software? Is there other option beside using third-parties software?

Well, the auto-setup one is so easy to use it can have you up and running in about 10 minutes. Worst case if you don't like it then go back to XP's web server.
