I am looking for a way to set up a development environment for web applications (using PHP and either MySQL or SQLite) on a USB flash drive: that means at least a web server, a database manager and hopefully an IDE to work on the application.
Now my problem is that I work on several computers with different OS (mainly Windows 7 and Linux). This requirement renders most of the solutions I found very difficult to implement, because it usually ends up by installing every software twice (one for each OS) without mentioning the config problems.
Is there a way to get around this ?
As I looked for OS independent software to do this, I thought of Java: is it possible to manage this with Java based software (which ones ?) and will it work no matter the OS ?
