Chapter 10. Production Techniques > Staging and Deployment

Staging and Deployment

Long after prototyping but still before your application is ready for prime time, you’ll want to stage it. Staging refers to viewing your application in its final form, but not in its target location—that is, not on the public server or wherever you intend for it to reside. It’s like the last step of testing before you go live.

Staging probably sounds easier than it really is. The thing is, you can’t always test your application on your hard drive. Many applications use application servers that abide by a different set of restrictions. When you test a Flash SWF on your hard drive, for example, it’s allowed to reach out and load data from web services on remote servers—something that’s restricted when you view your movie in the browser from a web server. Every time you test a movie, it will work, but it will fail when you deliver.
