Eclipse clearing the console

Hi all,

I'm currently trying to implement a client/server setup to transfer files. Its progressing slowly but I encountered something weird. I have my client ask for a file name and I want to pass this filename to the server. I have coded a bunch of stuff up and it seems to work well, however I'm wondering if there is a separate console space for each program? Since I first start the server program then the client program and have other java files being used/called. Any ideas?

I don't know if eclipse provides that, though I would imagine it does. Of course, if you run your code from the command line, which is the normal way of doing it, you can simply open separate terminal windows.

I think this discussion would sit better in our IDEs forum, so shall move it. By the way, the thread title and the question you asked are different.
We have an FAQ which tells you how to clear the console screen. That might help.

Yes, I'm pretty sure that if you run multiple applications at the same time, Eclipse will create a separate console space for each of them - or at least can be persuaded to do so. Subversion and Maven definitely get their own private console spaces.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
I agree. Here's the link:
