How to disable stealing of focus by Console in Eclipse

There is one very annoying issue in Eclipse: stealing of focus by Console window.

Console window is displayed when you run application.

When you set focus to some other window like Search results and application prints something on output then Eclipse will automatically switch to Console window. Your search results are gone.

There is simple way how to get rid of such a behavior.

Go to Window -> Preferences -> Run/Debug -> Console. Uncheck options:

  • Show when program writes to standard out
  • Show when program writes to standard error

Managing LDAP with Apache Directory Studio

One of key downsides of LDAP in past was lack of cross-platform tools for managing directory structure.

Recently I found very good implementation of LDAP management tool based on Eclipse. It is Apache Directory Studio.

It is possible to connect it also to Microsoft Active Directory. Good work!
