Eclipse: Open Multiple Console Views at Once
Problem: I have multiple programs running in Eclipse at once and want to be able to see the console outputs of each one at the same time. How do I open multiple console windows so that I can see the output of each of these programs?Solution: Assuming you already have the default Console View open in your window, you can create a new console by:
If you don’t have a Console View open, just go to Window -> Show View -> Console which should open a new view for you.
- Select the Console View
- On the top right of the Console View, there should be a button called “Open Console“. Click it and choose which type of console you want to open – Java Stack Trace Console, Maven Console, or New Console View. I usually go with the Java Stack Trace Console, but choose whatever suits your needs best.
- You should now have another Console View to look at.
