Deploying multiple artifacts when one depends on another

A colleague coming from Netbeans was asking me today how to manually deploy artifacts into a running container from inside IntelliJ and to be honest I'm not sure how or even if you can do it so I thought I'd ask. We have a fairly large Maven project that builds 5 EAR files. One of the EAR files we create is a web services client EAR that we use to test web services that are deployed in a second EAR. We can't deploy or build the web services client EAR until the web services EAR is deployed. So, no problem creating a run configuration that deploys our web services EAR. The question is how to deploy the web services client EAR into the same running WebLogic instance. Is that doable? Thanks.
