Goal

After an application has been deployed to production, the development team will likely maintain the application (e.g. fixing code) or create a new version for the application. Once a new version is ready, the application needs to be redeployed to the production server.

However, in many cases, a live redeployment is preferable, that is, the application must not be offline while the new version is deployed. Thus, external users are not aware of any change.

This article shows how to use the weblogic.Deployer command to achieve that need.
