Javoso, Yes, you can split the view in Eclipse. Open two Java files in the editor. Then drag one of them to the pane on the bottom (where the console and task list are.) Eclipse will then split the main Java area for your two files.
I'm not too sure about Eclipse 3.1, but in 3.5 all you have to do is go to the Window menu, select New Editor, left click (do not release) on the newly created tab, drag to the bottom of the editor until you see a down arrow, and then release.

thanks H. C. Lac,
That's correct. I also came to that solution some months ago...
The only caveat there is that you have the header and footer between both editors (compared to only a horizontal line in other IDE's).
But's better then not having the possibility.
