Merely writing that word takes me back to my Websphere days...shudder....

I would like to hear from the community and the developers about various
approaches to deployments.

My first broad question is: in a typical development/QA/production type
deployment scenario, do people separate out these environments by domains,
or by standalone instances within a domain (not even sure entirely if this
is possible), or...?

Best,
Laird

Instances ..generally one webapp Instance per environment..and one Oracle instance per environment
the first 'development' environment for me is always localhost..I host Oracle locally so that is never a problem
once localhost testcases run correctly I then promote to 'QA'
then 'UAT'
then finally prod

thanks,
Martin

Hi,

In a system I'm working on, we use separate virtual machines to
separate different environments, since it's usually not as simple as
just deploying an application to an app server. This works great, to
the point we even do development on virtual machines (prevents us from
cluttering laptops with everything we have to install).

When developing, we have multiple domains, but in QA and production we
have Glassfish instances on separate servers. Multiple domains
simulates having separate servers well enough for development. Using
multiple domains, you have to make sure they are created with
different port numbers than existing domains, and you have to specify
port number when using asadmin, so it's a bit of a hassle.

Hope this helps!

Regards,
Vetle
