Is it possible to make an intranet or internet application which can be deployed dynamical from the computer which is running it?
By example let's say that my application is working on desktop but it also shows data on web. In normal case, this application shows data from current server to a webpage. What happens if I want that the application to be runed from multiple computers, and
the online users to be able to connect to a specific one and to be able to check the data it shows. Can the application construct the connection web link dynamic, from the computer IP or something which could make it unique, so a user can connect to one page
which shows the data from a specified computer? If it's possible, how should I make this application, I have the desktop app, and I want to make a web interface for it, maybe through a restful web api.
Thank you very much, and I hope my question was clear enough!

Hi Vlad Andrew,
From your description, your description of the situation:
1: You have multiple servers to show data to a webpage.
2: You want an online user to be able to connect to a specific one (server) and to be able to check the data.
3: You want a web application to show these data. 4: You want a web interface create by Web API.
As far as I know, It is possible to make the web application. I think your system should have the following structure:
1: multiple database servers (show data to a specified user)
2: Web API (Provides a data interface)
Web API enables dynamic access to data by using the computer IP or something which you could make it unique (or defines a user-database table). Web API can achieve a unified access interface, optimize the system structure.

3: Web Application
The Web application will show specified data to a user.
