Running the application by itself is different from running it inside a user profile / facebook pages.

For example, you can have your application set as "iframe canvas app". However, when it runs inside a user profile, it will run as a FBML canvas app. As a result, JavaScript will not work in application tab and you need to use FBJS. This is the current picture and fyi, Facebook is moving away from FBML and will support "iframe application tab.

There are other issues that you needs. For details, check out other FAQs in this section. My eBook on developing an application tab may also be a good reference too.
