Change the server deployment order

By default, WebLogic Server deploys Enterprise applications, EJBs, Web applications, and Web Services immediately after their subsystems initialize at boot time. Startup classes are deployed and run after application modules have been deployed.

The actual deployment order of modules is determined by their Deployment Order attribute. By default, new applications and modules are configured with a Deployment Order value of 100. During startup, modules with a lower Deployment Order value are deployed before those with a higher value. Modules with the same Deployment Order value are deployed in alphabetical order by deployment name.

To view or change the deployment order of modules deployed to the WebLogic Server domain:

  1. If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit (see Use the Change Center).
  2. In the left pane of the Administration Console, select Deployments. The right pane displays all modules configured for deployment in the domain, listed in their current deployment order.
  3. In the right pane, click the name of the module for which you want to change the deployment order.
  4. In the Overview tab that displays, enter a new value in the Deployment Order field, and click Save to apply your changes.

    To change the deployment order of a Startup class, follow the instructions in Configure startup classes.

  5. 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).
