Concurrent Developer Testing in 12.1 Environment


We have been using 11.5 for quite a while and are now trying to learn the ropes with 12.1.

We often have multiple developers testing new changes to the same application at the same time on the same server. In 11.5 we basically did this by using standardized naming conventions in the file system. Different developers used different URLs to essentially get to different copies of the application for testing.

We are hoping we have some better options for concurrent development in 12.1. Does anyone have any suggestions? Is there any way to use NWDI to deploy different versions of the same application to the same development server such that they can be tested independently without doing a lot of renaming?

With our Java web apps (unrelated to our MII web apps) we just deploy .war files with different context roots and that solves most of the issues. Is a similar approach available in 12.1?
