Understanding stageMode in Weblogic

Hi All,

Just to get the grasp on stageMode

When it stage mode, it means EAR file gets copied during startup to ......./<managedServer>/stage/ directory.

However in nostage mode, it means EAR file get's read from the directory specified during install process (browse --> select file) of Deployment.

Is this the case or is there more to it?

In nostage , the Administration Server does not copy deployment unit files. Instead, all servers deploy using the same physical copy of the deployment files, which must be directly accessible by the Administration Server and target servers.

With nostage deployments of exploded archive directories, WebLogic Server automatically detects changes to a deployment's JSPs or Servlets and refreshes the deployment. (This behavior can be disabled if necessary.)

Hope this helps.

Regards, Sud.
I agree. Here's the link:
