I also don’t have a second physical box any longer on which to build a second machine. So here are some details on my home server environment - I then launched Windows Setup and after providing the basic information, I was notified that I needed to update my Schema.

That simple sed command changes the first 'hello' on each line to 'jello'. Notice that this sed command with the -i option overwrites your original file, so of course you want to be very careful with this command, and make backups of your original files, and move them to other directories before issuing this command.

Web Logic Server automatically manages client connections so that only new client requests are directed to the new version.
Clients already connected to the application during the redeployment continue to use the older version of the application until they complete their work, at which point Web Logic Server automatically retires the older application.
