You can make a browser application, you will need something to serve it such as Tomcat, but no reason why you can’t do it. When I want a quicky for myself I often just use perl or php at the server, mainly because writing a html interface for what ever your code does is quick and easy.
In my case the server is seperate, but you can have the server onboard your PC.
So, look at apache and tomcat.
Also though, consider this ->
Assuming you don’t have a spare PC that you can set up as your own web application server, get virtualbox, get a ready made virtual machine that does the serving for you.
Get VirtualBox, then go to Jumpbox and get a ready made virtual machine that covers postgresql or mysql, and web services.
You only need to follow instructions in the set up, the only thing is when you have virtualbox and your virtual machine, switch the network in virtualbox to “Bridged”, that way you can see it from your PC and other PCs on your network.
