When you deploy an app to a managed server and run the app, you will observe that temporary files are created in <servername>/tmp/_WL_User directory. If you delete or undeploy the app using the admin console when the managed server is stopped, you will observe that these temporary files are not deleted, even if the Managed Server is restarted later.
