Server Template: Configuration: Deployment
Use this page to define the default deployment staging configuration for this server template.
Use this page to:
- Specify whether deployment should copy the application's files to the Managed Server's staging area (StagingMode)
- Set the location to which files should be staged (StagingDirectoryName)
- Specify the target directory path on the Administration Server for uploaded files (upload directory)
Name Description Staging Mode
The mode that specifies whether an application's files are copied from a source on the Administration Server to the Managed Server's staging area during application preparation.
During application preparation, the application's files are copied from the source on the Administration Server to the Managed Server's staging area. If you specify
external_stage, the copy will not occur. This is useful when the staging area is a shared directory, already containing the application files, or if this is a single server domain. The administrator must ensure that the Managed Server's staging directory is set appropriately. Deployment errors will result if the application is not available during the preparation or activation of the application. Each application can override the staging mode specified here.
Staging Directory Name
The directory path on the Managed Server where all staged (prepared) applications are placed.
If an absolute directory name is not specified, the path is relative to the root directory "/". Once configured, you cannot change the staging directory name. Remove all applications from the server prior to changing this attribute. The default staging directory is "stage", relative to the server root.
Upload Directory Name
The directory path on the Administration Server where all uploaded applications are placed.
If an absolute directory name is not specified, the path is relative to the root directory "/". The default staging directory is "stage", relative to the server root. On the Managed Server this returns null, and is not configurable.
An absolute directory that is outside the root directory of any WebLogic Server instance or application, and that resides on a physical disk that is separate from the WebLogic Server host's system disk.
