Can Eclipse run a single instance only of a project? [message #1808820] Tue, 02 July 2019 10:46

I usually develop mobile apps for iOS and Android and I am used to launching projects repeatedly without asking if another instance is running or not, since the simulators will handle this for me.

When I use Eclipse to develop desktop apps, I face this problem since running multiple times the same project will result in multiple different instances. I would like Eclipse to be able to kill the previously-opened processes before running the new one. I've found this question, but this one addresses the problem to let a single instance of a Java application run, but this is not quite the point. I do not care if the final release will run one or two times, I just want to be able to run a single instance when developing, seamlessly like Xcode or Eclipse for Android do. Moreover, that solution will popup an alert when running the same project twice, but that's not a solution for me. Kill and run, that it.

Is it possible to change the run configuration of the project to achieve this without changing the source code in Mybkexperience , or is this achievable with a plugin or what else? I would like to find a completely automated solution that could make me work as if I were under Xcode.
