eclipse 2.0

I've been using Eclipse for about 6 months and so far I had a very pleasant experience. Prior of Eclipse I used some other IDEs (JBuilder, NetBean etc) but in my opinion Eclipse is one of the best.
I have a couple of questions about Eclipse:
1. Is anybody used Eclipse with Weblogic Plugin from Genuitec?? How practical is and how much you recommend it??
2. Starting with Eclipse 2.0 all the perspectives opened at one time displays only one file. For example I can't have opened in the Resource Perspective one file (let's say a jsp) and in Java Perspective another file (java file).
This restriction is very inconvenient for mine, so I was wondering if anyone knows a way control this behaviour.
Thank you!

In 2.0, you can open a second window, in which you can display different files. Try Window - New Window.

I know I can open a new window, but my intend was to be able to have different perspective of different files but all in the same window.
If you remember in all the previous versions ... starting with eclipse 1.0, it was possible to have different files in different perspectives (same window). I just don't understand why starting with eclipse2.0 they took a completely different approach.
At least, it would have been better to put in preferences .. so the end user will have control over this behavior.
Thanks for your replay,
I agree. Here's the link:
