Can I run a demo application on my local machine without installing the modeler?
We share demos among our presales team, and I would like to know if we can share the mendix application without installing mendix on the user’s machine. I can’t use a cloud deployment because we don’t always have internet access at our customer sites. So I would like to be able to get an executable jar file, double click it and my mendix app site comes up on my localhost.
No this is not possible. The Mendix Business Server needs to be configured, uses multiple other libraries including their license agreements that must be included, needs a deployment folder to write files but also forms for the client to load and possibly a local database, et cetera. You could package some of this in a jar file but it won't make things any easier.
Just install the Mendix package and everything is much easier, you can just hit F5 and it runs.
