Default Joomla/JSAS... Please Help!!!

I currently do not have an internet connection (other than using someone else's connection or going to the library... finances aren't happening... no phone ) but I want to go ahead and use Jommla offline by way of JSAS (Joomla stand-alone server) to set up a few things till I'm back on track ...

Question 1: Can I use JSAS offline... build my site... then publish it to my server online that has Joomla already installed on it? I don't see how to copy files (update my site) to my online web host from JSAS or within Joomla online.

Question 2: If I develop my site with JSAS offline how do I give it correct URL paths to files and links? JSAS is using my hard drive as it's directory.

There actually is a support forum for Joomla and that particular topic is addressed in this message

There is no problem in developing locally with JSAS and then moving the whole caboodle to a live server. I have done this about 5 times now. All you have to do is make a new Joomla install on the server and do not use the option to install sample data, copy your database SQL into the database specified in setting up Joomla, then install your own template, assuming you have developed your own. As the install was made on the production server there should be no need to edit configuration.php. Quite quick & painless!
