i wrote a chat application and it works, but i wanted to test it by chatting with other user. Till now i was just using my computer's localhost and was typing in new messages. i wrote that application in JSP and was using the apache tomcat to test it out.
can anyone suggest how can i test it actually?...as in do i have to put my machine as a server and ask my friend to access my computer and the application? or is there other way around it
Deploy your application to your machine, give your IP to your friends and ask them to access it using urls like http://xx.xx.xx.xx/app-name You need a static P to let your friends access it over internet, or if you are on a local network, you can give your IP to your fiends who are on the same network.
