Hi all
I create my web application using eclipse and tomcat7. It works fine I call it through (localhost:8080/myApplicationName). Now I need to test my application by some users but I don't know how to call my application from different machines. Your support is highly appreciated

Thanks
Nada

Instead of "localhost" they just need to use the name of your computer.

They do need to have network access from their computer to yours. Obviously it can't be done if there isn't any known connection between the two machines.

Thanks for the reply. Could it be through the Internet?

You will probably need to configure port forwarding in your router / firewall, but it should definitely be possible. Check the documentation of your router / firewall to see how to do this.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
