      This might sound like a very silly question, but is it possible to browse through applications in jboss ear file, while not connected to the web?

      I have various applications which up to now I have browsed to using http://localhost:8080/appname/servlet?name=value

      as an example.

      Is there a way of doing this offline? I have started to use an offline computer but it wants to connect to the net even though jboss is running on the local machine.

      Is this possible? (jboss 3.0.4)

          It is possible but the TCP/IP services has to be available. Therefore try to use your online computer and remove the cable to your network-card. Your TCP/IP services are still available (and JBoss can connect to localhost) but the 'outside' is dark now.

          Just use a computer having a network-card installed.

            I'm not quite sure what you mean - is this right:

            The computer is running Windows 98 SE and jboss 3.0.4. It has no modem and is not internet ready.

            It does have a netgear network card which has TCP/IP set up correctly.

            I unplugged the network cable, leaving the card installed, ran jboss and used IE to connect to http://localhost:8080/......

            IE instantly closed, to be replaced by 'MSN Internet setup', which says I have to start by installing a modem.

            Is this necessary? Do I need a modem? Or have I misunderstood what you meant?

              That is not a jboss thing but a microsoft thing.

              It is solvable but i do not know how any more
