Part III includes the following chapters:
Oracle recommends that you deploy your portal to a staging environment where it can be assembled and tested before going live. In the staging environment, you use the WebLogic Portal Administration Console to assemble and configure desktops. You also test your portal in a staging environment before propagating it to a live production system. In the testing aspect of the staging phase, there is tight iteration between staging and development until the application is ready to be released.
For a view of how the tasks in this section relate to the overall portal life cycle, refer to the WebLogic Portal Overview.
