Weblogic Integration: local installation needed?

Hello, folks. I'm currently developing an application that'll use WL8.1 as backend server, and I'd like to try the IDEA weblogic integration.

However, it seems I need something installed on my local machine to be able to do that. I only have weblogic installed on a remote machine with absolutely nothing on my machine, and probably won't be installing WL on my machine just for using IDEA integration....

HOWEVER I find quite acceptable to copy some jars from the remote server to my machine. That comes to my question: what's the minimum structure from a weblogic installation I should replicate on my machine to be able to use the weblogic integration? $/weblogic81/server/lib/weblogic.jar is enough or should I bring in something else?

BTW: the remote server is a Linux machine and I'm working on win2k. So I hope I don't have to copy any native libraries.

Currently local weblogic installation is needed for corresponding jars, required for deployment/running ejbc etc.
So yes, all you need now is place registry.xml into bea home and recreate directory structure containing weblogic.jar.

I too am working with only a remote installation of WLS.

Can you explain what registry.xml is? I don't have that file as part of Idea or WLS.

I created C:\bea\wlserver702\server\lib and placed weblogic.jar into it. But when I attempt to tell Idea the name of my bea home directory, it doesn't like it. Idea must be looking for something specific to confirm that the directoy is actually an installation of WLS.

Currently local weblogic installation is needed for
corresponding jars, required for deployment/running
ejbc etc.
So yes, all you need now is place registry.xml into
bea home and recreate directory structure containing
weblogic.jar.

registry.xml is a repository where BEA stores information about WebLogic servers version, paths, installed components.
It usually located just under BEA_HOME directory
