We're all accustomed to starting up our Java apps by selecting the Servicing all requests option. This makes sure that the application is up and running and available to end users.
When you select the Servicing only administration requests option, it "specifies that WebLogic Server make the application available in Administration Mode only." What does this mean?
You can "start the application in Administration Mode, which restricts access to the application to a configured Administration channel so you can perform final testing without opening the application to external client connections or disrupting connected clients." Thus, the application is only made available to the administrator.
That's it really!
