You can deploy a test application in a few minutes:

1. Download Eclipse Europa 3.3 JEE with Crystal Reports for Eclipse v1.0.4 Windows (currently the latest version): http://diamond.businessobjects.com/node/433

2. Integrate the access to your weblogic server into eclipse so that you can start and stop the server from your eclipse ide.

3. When you are finished with the eclipse integration of the server you can easily deploy an example application for any report file by follwoing the steps described on the help of crystal reports for eclipse:

-->Help>Crystal Reports For Eclipse Developer Guide>Developer's Guide > Tutorial: Embedded Reporting > Developing a Crystal Reports web application > Viewing the report using the Viewer Tag Library

For more customized versions use the "Crystal Reports Viewers Java SDK" instead of the "Viewer Tag Library" described above.
