No, although I would highly recommend to have WL installed on
developer's machines (instead of sharing a single server instance
somewhere on the network).

Yes, you'll need to copy the war/ear file (containing the Cactus test
cases and your classes under test) to the remote machine. Several
possibilities :
1/ shared drive (and thus the Ant copy task)
2/ FTP (Ant ftp task)
3/ execute scp, rsh, etc from Ant (using exec)

Then you'll need to start WL remotely. Either telnet, ssh to you startup
script or JMX or use a local admin server that starts a managed server
or ...

Not sure I understand. Why would you want to reverse the build ? You
don't mean this server is used both for development and production, do
you ?!!! :-)

Then you stop and restart it with one of the method above-mentionned.

> At least weblogic 5.1 required that!
