Hi. In Eclipse, I have added some external tools that I use frequently. Is
there a way to add these tools to the toolbar or assign a keyboard
shortcut to access them? I haven't been able to figure out a way to access
them other than the Run -> External Tools menu. It is possible to
"Organize Favorites" under External Tools but that just moves the tools to
the Run -> External Tools menu.

I'm an Eclipse newbie and didn't realize that there is an External Tools
launcher icon right on the toolbar.

There currently is a command for running the last external tool
See Window>Preferences>Workbench>Keys
It is in the Run/Debug category; Run Last Launched External Tool
By default it is not mapped to a shortcut.
I have it mapped to F9

We have a bug report to provide the ability to map a shortcut to a specific
history item but I could not find it tonight :-(

I've found one for a specific external tool, but it's marked WON'T FIX. Since I use multiple external tools, I hope this gets revisited, or that somebody can point me to an alternative solution.
