    Default Eclipse IDE and running Java Applications

    Hello All,

    In the Eclipse IDE, there is a green button on the toolbar for running applications, and when I hover over it, the tooltip says, "Run MyJava (3) (Already Running)".

    First of all, does the "(3)" indicate that I have 3 instances running ?

    Second, how do I stop it (each instance, if applicable) from running ?

    I've attached a .gif file of what I'm talking about.

    Thanks !

    The (3) indicates you probably (or at one time did have) three versions of this Run Configuration.
    You can see what configs you have under the Run->Run Configurations menu.

    As for how you stop them, look for the console tab.
    There'll be a red square for stopping the app.
    If you have more than one running then there's a button further along for selecting which app to display in the console.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.

    Thanks for the response, Tolls. I had to look around to find out how to display the 'Console' tab, but as of today, no instances are running.

    Thanks again.

    Look to the right of that red square (the stop button); you'll find a small console icon with a down-arrow button next to it; press it and you'll see a drop down menu with all running (and terminated) configurations.

    kind regards,

    Oh, is that what that little icon is supposed to be?

    That was an easy one; look near the middle of the top toolbar; it has an icon with a tooltip text 'Automatically Fold Uninteresting Elements'; what does that icon represent? A planet with a single moon, orbiting counter clockwise? Two pool balls on the move? What is it?

    kind regards,
