Part III includes the following chapters:
In the staging phase, you use the portal resources created in development to create the Community templates with which portal administrators and end-users create Communities. If you developed custom content management functionality for your Community, set up the required content properties in staging. In this phase you also set up visitor entitlements and delegated administration on Community resources and configure cache for performance management in this phase. After your application is configured and tested, you deploy it to the production environment.
For a view of how the tasks in this section relate to the overall portal life cycle, refer to the WebLogic Portal Overview.
