The XDM application has been cleaned up and the parameters checked for deployment. You have set up your stand-alone development server and checked that you can package, deploy and run the XDM application. Together with database scripts and installation instructions, you are now ready to deliver a deployment package to the operations team to install on the test environment. You have also seen how you can use Apache Ant to script this process.
When your test team has completed testing, and you have corrected any issues the test has uncovered, you use the same procedure to create a new final deployment package that your operations team will install on the production server.
Your ADF enterprise application is ready for business.
