This preface describes the document accessibility features and conventions used in this guide—Deploying Applications to Oracle WebLogic Server.


This document is a resource for:

  • Administrators who want to deploy Java EE applications or application modules to WebLogic Server instances or clusters. It is assumed that you are working in a production environment, which is generally characterized by multiple WebLogic Server instances or clusters running on multiple machines. It is also assumed that you have one or more application module archive files that have been tested and are ready to deploy on a production server.

  • Developers who may need to deploy an application in a development environment, package an application for delivery to an administrator or deployer, or create and export the configuration of an application for deployment to a testing, staging, or production environment
