Parallel Deployment allows several online deployment operations to run simultaneously. As a result, it scales deployments in an AS Java Cluster, and improves the performance of the online deployment operations.
Parallel deployment is feasible for application sets that have no or little overlapping dependency regions.
There are parallel and strictly nonparallel software types. The strictly nonparallel ones cannot take advantage of this functionality.
The online deployments that does not require restart to be deployed, by default can be deployed in parallel batches.
The offline deployments that require restart to be deployed, cannot be deployed in parallel batches.
