All servers in a domain run either in development mode or production mode. In general, production mode requires you to configure additional security features. For information on the differences between the two modes, refer to "Creating a WebLogic Domain" in Creating WebLogic Domains Using the Configuration Wizard.
Note: If you change a domain from running in development mode to production mode, Oracle recommends that you remove the boot identity file. This file contains the user name and password used to start each server in the domain. For more information, see Removing Boot Identity Files After Startup.
To ensure additional security, you can enable secured production mode for your domain. For more information, see Secure your production domain.
