AIM Java net.authorize.Environment question

Implementing AIM with Java.

For the method Merchant.createMerchant, the enumeration

net.authorize.Environment has four environments:

 

SANDBOX
SANDBOX_TESTMODE
PRODUCTION
PRODUCTION_TESTMODE

 

Production is obvious, but what exactly are the others?

 

And how do they relate to the "Test Mode" that can be set in our merchant acount on the website?

 

Thanks.

A sandbox is a testing environment that isolates untested code changes and outright experimentation from the production environment or repository.

I appreciate the responses but they did not answer my question.  Can anyone provide an answer?

Hello rxalexa,

 

Test Mode should not be used with the Sandbox.

 

Test mode may be used with a production account to confirm that the API Login and Transaction Key are correct and that the application is able to successfully connect using them.  However, it will not attempt to process a transaction when set to Test Mode.

 

I hope this answers your question.
