Deploying a Lifecycle Module

You can deploy a lifecycle module using the following tools:

You do not need to specify a classpath for the lifecycle module if you place it in the domain-dir/lib or domain-dir/lib/classes directory.

After you deploy a lifecycle module, you must restart the server to activate it. The server instantiates it and registers it as a lifecycle event listener at server initialization.

Note –

If the is-failure-fatal setting is set to true (the default is false), lifecycle module failure prevents server initialization or startup, but not shutdown or termination.
