Can Activiti Explorer be packaged without the Engine

Is it possible to deploy Activiti Explorer on its own without including the Activiti Engine embedded in the same WAR/EAR? Is it designed to fully depend on the Rest API to control the engine running on a different server?

We are developing a business web application which will involve workflow. The app must meet our internal look and feel standards. Therefore, our intent is to use the REST API to interact with the Activiti engine. The Activiti engine will be deployed separately and will be packaged with needed JavaDelegate and bean classes for our business models.

For some administration and monitoring purposes we would still like to be able to use Explorer. So the cleanest deployment approach seems to be to have three EARs – two GUI web applications (Explorer and our custom app) and the Activit Engine deployed with the REST API.

Does anyone know if this is possible?
