10 Application Deployments

Application deployment refers to the process of making an application or module available for processing client requests in a WebLogic Server domain. WebLogic Server implements the Java EE 6 specification. Java EE 6 includes a deployment specification, JSR-88, that describes a standard API used by deployment tools and application server providers to configure and deploy applications to an application server. For more information on application deployment, see Deploying Applications to Oracle WebLogic Server.

This chapter describes how to monitor and control various application types deployed to the current domain.

    • Distribution

    • Source Accessibility

  8. Click Next to update the deployment settings or Deploy to complete deployment of this application.

  9. Optionally, on the Deployment Settings page, you can complete common tasks before deploying the application and update deployment settings.

  10. Click Deploy to complete deployment of this application.

Redeploy applications

Redeploying an application redeploys the archive file or exploded directory. Redeploy an application if you have made changes to it and want to make the changes available to WebLogic Server clients.

To redeploy an application or module:

  1. From the WebLogic Domain dropdown menu, select Control, then select Deployments.

    • Application Name

    • Distribution

    • Source Accessibility

  9. Click Next to update the deployment settings or Redeploy to complete redeployment of this application.

  10. Optionally, on the Deployment Settings page, you can complete common tasks before deploying the application and update deployment settings.

  11. Click Redeploy to complete deployment of this application.

Undeploy applications

Undeploying an application removes it from every target of the domain to which the application is deployed. Once you undeploy an application from the domain, you must deploy it again if you want to make it available to WebLogic Server clients. To temporarily make applications unavailable to WebLogic Server clients, you can stop them instead of undeploying them.

Before you begin

Before you can undeploy an application, you must stop it to ensure that it is not servicing client applications. See Stop applications.

To undeploy an application:

  1. From the WebLogic Domain dropdown menu, select Control, then select Deployments.

  2. In the Deployments table, select the row of the application you want to undeploy.

    The control options are displayed above the table.

  3. Click Undeploy.

  4. On the Undeploy Java EE Application: Confirmation page, click Undeploy to confirm your decision and remove the application.

    If you later want to deploy the removed application, see Deploy applications.

Fetch deployment plans

A deployment plan is a file that contains the deployment settings as well as post-deployment configuration changes of an application. You can fetch and save the deployment plan of an application, and then deploy or redeploy that application later using the saved deployment plan.

To fetch a deployment plan for an application:

  1. From the WebLogic Domain dropdown menu, select Control, then select Deployments.

  2. In the Deployments table, select the row of the application for which you want to fetch the deployment plan.

    The control options are displayed above the table.

  3. Click Fetch Deployment Plan.

  4. On the Fetch Deployment Plan page, select the machine on which you want to save the deployment plan: Machine where this Web browser is running or Machine where Enterprise Manager is running.

  5. Click Fetch.

Initialize caches

For enterprise applications, Web applications, and Coherence archives, you can manually clear the caches and pools of idle beans in application-level caches.
