I am working through Sun's XML tutorial with eclipse. I'm hoping to build my skillset on both. When I run my echo program it looks like eclipse is using javaw and not java. Is this a windows version? I look at the tools description from Sun with my JDK and they don't mention javaw.
javaw is a version of the java launcher for windows that does not open a console window for the application. For instance, if you shortcut to start the app and use java MyApp it will open a console window that will receive standard out, if you use javaw MyApp it won't open a console window. I don't know about changing Eclipse's default launcher - am a gvim/IDEA user =) -Brian
