Is there a way to display multiple console windows in Eclipse, such that each one shows a different process. I can change the process being viewed on one of the consoles, but as soon as the other process prints something, it switches both consoles to show that. Thanks.

I don't think you can open multiple Console views, at least in the same window. However, you can click on the Pin Console icon to "pin" the console to a specific process and avoid the switching.

Oooh, this is wicked! I never actually needed to to this, but it turns out there's a couple of useful decorations on the console window to permit opening multiple consoles and managing them. This is Eclipse 3.1 I'm using, BTW. Haven't yet moved up to Callisto.

You can view Multiple Consoles in Eclipse

I am using Eclipse 3.3.1 and Standard Console have drop down Icon (Little window with + sign), Please select New Console view from that option. This will bring up new Console and from Display Selected Console you can set the desired application.

Oooh, dawgies can you display multiple consoles! If you look closely on the Console View's top bar, you'll see a dropdown list control that permits you to select one of several consoles (typically things like debug and build). Or create a new console. If that's not enough, right-click on the tab and select a Detached View - you'll get a freestanding window.

Other useful features are the "Fast View" and "Pin" facilities.
