Trying to deploy the OFSAA Application in Weblogic which is installed using Production Mode. It is not getting Deployed. It is showing Failed as Status in Deployment although.

It is confirmed that FICServer is up and running without error on Application Server.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

Steps followed for Deployment:
1>In $FIC_HOME PortC.jar Utility is there. Run java -jar PortC.jar DMP in putty and changed the Web_Local_Path, Weblogic_Home, Weblogic_Domain_Home, Web_Server_IP_Address as per new Installation of WebLogic in DefaultPorts.properties and updated it through java -jar PortC.jar UPD.
2>From ficweb run./ant.sh in putty. It generated war and ear files in ficweb.
3>Copied this ear/war file to the new webserver which is at production mode in the respective folder and extracted them.
4>Started WebLogic .
5>Once WebLogic was up and running we deployed this ear file. after some time it came into failed state.
