Custom Eclipse Window Title

6. November 2012

I used Eclipse for a long time. Now I have to manage multiple running instances – mostly for the development branch and the production branch of our project. The problem is distinguishing the running instances by their task icon/window title. I search a little bit and found how to customize the branding or the -showlocation startup parameter. But after looking at the Eclipse preferences I found a very nice way: General | Workspace | Workspace name

This results in a nice and short solution to this problem – in the task bar

and in the Eclipse title bar
