how to create portable rails app?

Hi,
i have a rails app which is done with instant rails, now i need to take
the app to other computer and use it without migrating , that is plug
and play use of that application, can anyone help with that??? plz!

Rails applications are portable. You just need to copy your
application's directory.
Of course you will need your server already set up for that.
If you could describe your environment to us, will be much easier to help you.
With this information is impossible to address the best solution for
your problem.

What will be your deployment environment?

Could you be more specific?
What is a person that don't know rails? A sysadmin? An end user? A developer?
Define "use" for that person.
Define "plug and play" for an application. Is it refered to the
deployment? to the user?

You can just
zip up the InstantRails directory and move it over to the other
computer (assuming you are talking of another windows computer). The
database and all of the rails support software including ruby and gems
and your application are all contained in the InstantRails directory
tree. It can just be copied over to another computer and it will run
there the same as it does on your computer.
