Difference between deployment mode and production mode

Posted by

In deployment mode, the configuration for security is relaxed whereas in production mode the server runs with all security configurations enabled

In deployment mode, the auto deployment for application is allowed whereas in production mode the server disables the auto deployment for application. We need to deploy the application using the weblogic administration console.

In deployment mode, the default provided digital certificates and keystores  can be used for testing the application over SSL  whereas in production mode the server  display the warning message for using the default SSL and certificates need to be digitally signed by third party like Verisign.
