Porting web-based application to offline

    Our company has a web-based application and the boss wants to make it
    runnable in a notebook without any network connection. I'm have some
    idea that using Tomcat or even Jetty as the servlet container. However
    I don't think it is practical performance-wise (the notebook may has
    128MB - 256MB ram) and even It will be a nightmare to support when you
    deploy a server application to the customer machine.

    I want to know any company has the same problem and how they solve it?
    Or is writing a VB app and keeping 2 branches of my application is a
    better approach?

    Youe idea would be utterly impractical. Think of it!
    Find a barebone, fast and small-foot-print servlet/JSP engine
    and put http://localhost:8080/yourwebapp/ in your boss's
    bookmark. I personally recommend Resin 2.1.x from www.caucho.com.
    It's not free for corporate use, though.
