You probably want to install Tomcat by itself on your web server. NetBeans serves web applications in a built-in Tomcat container (at least that's how it worked when I was in school), but it would be a great deal of overkill to run all of NetBeans on your server. Check out the Apache Tomcat home page for details.

but, at present my web application is on standalone XP and developed in netbean. Now I connected 5 XP computer with networking. and, I want to install tomcat 6 on any one computer and want to deploy web application on the same. so, which step required , so I can access localhost from other 4 remaining computer and to access my web application. My main target is to get hands on experience with synchronization, session handling and database connection.
You don't even need to install tomcat to do that - just start your web application and access it by replacing "localhost" with the IP address of the computer the application runs on when typing in the http address on the other workstations.
