Weblogic 8.1 and IDEs

WLS 8.1 is released but IDEs (e.g. JBuilder, JDeveloper) are not supporting it yet.
Has anyone any suggestion how to make e.g. JBuilder 8 or JDeveloper work with WLS 8.1?

1. Installed WebLogic 8.1 locally.
2. Set up local server.
3. Defined connection pool and 2 data sources. The difference in new version is that there is not a separate TX Data Source node in the WebLogic Admin Console. You define each data source in the Data Sources node of the console's tree. For the TX Data Source I selected the "Honor Global Transactions" option. (Not 100% sure about this).
4. Changed my C:\bea\registry.xml file to say my WebLogic 8.1 release level was 7 (<release level="7.0").
5. Changed my server details in JBuilder to use my local WebLogic 8.1 server. The label in JBuilder Configure Servers is still WebLogic Application Server 7.x, but, the references are pointing to the 8.1 files.
6. Did a rebuild & deploy on ejb projects after changing the server setup in JBuilder to my local version.

Thanks JBuilder works with this kind of configuration!
Has anyone succesfully used JDeveloper
with WLS 8.1?
I agree. Here's the link:
