About the ADM Deployment Process
The Application Deployment Manager (ADM) deployment process represents the actual, physical update of the application customizations to the target environment, as well as the activation of these new customizations. The deployment process involves the creation of a deployment instance, called a deployment session, which migrates the previously created and validated deployment package.
The ADM deployment process uses the ADM command-line interface to deploy and activate the deployment package. The ADM command-line interface includes several options and contingencies available during the deployment and activation process. For more information and detailed procedures on the ADM deployment process, see Deploying an ADM Package. For information on the ADM command flow, see About the ADM Command Flow.
