Oracle WebLogic Server - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When an application is deployed in WLS 12.2.1 few files are getting created in the application folder.

Example : 

Domain_Home -> /local/apps/bigusr/
Application_Home -> /local/apps/bigusr/applications

Application is placed in Application_Home and deployed via WLS 12.2.1 console.

After, deployment additional files are created under "<application_home>" -> META-INF folder -> .WL_internal.

The file sizes are zero. Why do these files get created and what is the use ?
