communicating with IDEA from a remote process?

Is there any easy way to communicate with IDEA from a separate process? e.g. from another process tell IDEA to open a class at a specific line or something?

As some background, when working on Scala and continuous testing, sbt is really handy...

the main issue is rendering working/failing tests - then on failures navigating to the source code in IDEA.

I raised http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issue/SCL-1724 to track this idea.

I was wondering about writing a little web page renderer of the output of the sbt test results; where clicking on a line in a stack trace on a failed test case could then tell IDEA to open a class at a specific line.
