hi friends,

I have done a project (MVC architechture) consisted of

JSP,servlets,Javabean using tomcat in a standalone system.

My doubt is

1) How do a project like above is implemented in a client place?

Is this done just by copying the project in the client system?
What I mean is copying (c:\tomcat\webapps\myapplication\WEB-INF\classes) all the stuff in client system ? or any other process ?

Clarify me...
Thanks in advance...

MVC is a technology-neutral concept. It doesn't really matter that you user Java server technologies to implement it, assuming you understand the concept behind it you can transfer you application design to a desktop app easily enough. However you are not going to be able to simply dump all your servlets on a client machine - since servlets only run in a container.

It is not clear to me what you mean by
1) How do a project like above is implemented in a client place?

When I created a servlet based XML editing program for a client I took the standard Tomcat distribution, stripped out everything but the application, and zipped the whole thing up. With the addition of about a page of instructions on configuring for their system, they got the whole thing running in no time.

Is that what you had in mind?
I agree. Here's the link:
