I am trying to set up an existing WebLogic application in my Eclipse workspace. How can I set up WebLogic 10.3.3 as my server run-time environment?
My Eclipse environment is new, so I have eclipse mars.1. It runs fine on my desktop (JRE7).
After I installed the latest OEPE from http://download.oracle.com/otn_software/oepe/mars I had trouble starting eclipse, because this OEPE needs Java 8. I reverted my eclipse installation and tried to install an older OEPE.
Based on the discussion in Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse issue - need it to work with JDK 1.7, I tried to install the WebLogic Server Tools from OEPE 18.104.22.168.1 at http://download.oracle.com/otn_software/oepe/22.214.171.124.1/luna/repository. The installation fails, but suggests as remediation that I install version 126.96.36.19960107* of the WebLogic Server Tools instead. That version depends on Java 8, so it is not a good option for me.
Probably I would be fine if I installed Java 8 on my desktop, but what would be my best option if I need to stick with Java 7?
Should I use an older version of Eclipse instead of Mars.1?
My desktop WebLogic installation is 10.3.3, and includes jdk1.6 and oepe 11gR1 (with Eclipse Galileo).
