As I'm browsing files with Windows Explorer (on XP SP2) I
want to be able to double click on a file with a certain extension
(.xml, .java, etc.) have have it open up in Builder/eclipse. Using
the normal way of doing file associations ("Open With..."), I get a
"workspace in use" error (and the file still doesn't open). This
seems like it should be a slam dunk, I did this with JDeveloper all
the time - is it not possible with Eclipse? Thanks.
are you able to open a file from explorer when eclipse is not
running. ie - is it loading files whileu have eclipse already open
thats the problem?
if so, this is because eclipse is trying to run a second
eclipse. there is a way to tell applications that they can only
open once. if this is whats happening, i'll have a look at it, i
know i made a note about ths for something else last year, but just
cant remember right now.
i agree tho, it should be set to work in this way as
