Little gem for mac users.

This plugin really helps when working with multiple workspaces.
If you face the badge-problem, you can set the workspace name explicitly:
General > Workspace > Workspace name

The tool is really useful on OS X. Unfortunately since I updated to Eclipse Mars .2 the badge icon disappears some seconds after eclipse launch. Any chance to get this fixed?

The problem here is that Eclipse Oomph changes the badge label to whatever is set in the workspace name preference. If not set, Oomph will clear the badge label while this utility will use the last segment of the workspace path. I'll work with the Oomph team to remedy this.

Just upgraded to Eclipse Mars, and the first thing I added is the indispensable OS X Eclipse Launcher plugin. Thanks for this useful little plugin!

This plugin has stopped working after upgrading to OSX Yosemite. Anyone else having this issue?

In the new 2.0 version some code was introduced that required Java 1.7 instead of 1.6 as before. Make sure Java 1.7 or newer is used for Eclipse if you're also using this plugin. If you're on Luna you should also be on at least 1.7 since most bundles require this.

Upgraded to luna and this wonderful plugin still works as a charm!! :) - Thanks for a great plugin!

I just migrated to a mac, and not being able to open multiple eclipse instances was a problem to me. This plugin is very useful, solves this problem perfectly. Just what I needed!
