Publico Alvo All developers that create applications that will be used on various platforms.

Most developers work in the comfy confines of localhost. However, all applications ultimately run, at least partially, from some remote environment. In addition, most applications will also be run on an operating system and/or browser that differs from the development platform.

Using OpenSolaris, which provides a complete web development stack, and VirtualBox, which provides the means to deploy and test applications written to the stack across other operating systems, cross platform development and testing becomes a breeze. This presentation will introduce how you can use the Sun Web Stack in combination with VirtualBox and the ZFS file system to deploy and test applications across OpenSolaris, Ubuntu and Windows XP.
