By default, WebLogic Server deploys Enterprise applications, EJBs, Web applications, and Web Services immediately after their subsystems initialize at boot time. Startup classes are deployed and run after application modules have been deployed.
The actual deployment order of modules is determined by their Deployment Order attribute. By default, new applications and modules are configured with a Deployment Order value of 100. During startup, modules with a lower Deployment Order value are deployed before those with a higher value. Modules with the same Deployment Order value are deployed in alphabetical order by deployment name.
To change the deployment order of a Startup class, follow the instructions in Configure startup classes.
