In developement there's no difference; just you can assume that in an intranet the comunications will be faster, you can check easily wich browser users will use, the screen resolution, you can know more or less how many people will use the application, their skill level, and this could help you in choices designing the new intranet application.
It's always good if the database is not accessible from internet (putting it behind a firewall for example), and fix eventual security problems with JSP (the weblogic 5.1 'file servlet' can serve JSP sources to the client for example, and there are also other ways to do that). Also the EJB server is better if is not directly accessible from the client (what happens if the client is able to use an EJB directly?).
Generally, we can say that an internet application needs coding with much more cautions.
