When you update an
application, you can specify that WebLogic Server redeploy the original
archive file or exploded directory, or you can specify that WebLogic
Server deploy a new archive file in place of the original one. You can
also change the deployment plan that is associated with the application.
Update an application if you have made changes to the application and
you want to make the changes available to WebLogic Server clients, if
you have made changes to the deployment plan, or if you want to redeploy
an entirely new archive file in a new location.
To update an application,
follow these steps:
If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit (see Use the Change Center).

In the Locate New Deployment Version window, specify
whether you want to update the application in place (or in other
words, not actually redeploy) in the event that you have made changes
to the deployment plan, or whether you want to fully redeploy the
application. If you want to change the associated deployment plan or
even change the source file of the application, use the Change
Plan or Change Path buttons, respectively.
Click Finish after you have reviewed your choices.
To activate these changes, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Activate Changes. Not all changes take effect immediately—some require a restart (see Use the Change Center).
