    Default Nagging Run Result on Console!

    I am learning Java programming through video tutorials. Started practising programming Java a few days ago. I am using eclipse. Today discovered a nagging problem; till now, I have practised with nearly 10 programmes and saved them at my workspace. Today when I tried to compile and run a program, instead of displaying the result of the latest programme, it kept on engaging the console with a past run and even after I deleted that very programme, the result kept appearing no matter how many times I tried to run the latest programme. Kindly suggest a way out in detail.

    Either set up run configurations for your programs, or right click the file in the Project Explorer view and select Run As > Java Application. You can also use the Run button drop-down menu to select Run As when the file you want to run is selected in the main view.

    This is probably the wrong forum for this question, it should be moved to Java IDEs.

    Another good idea is to close any tabs with other applications in.
    I also found that creating a package for every type of application
    stopped this slight bug in the software. Reason being Eclipse get's
    confused when there are lots of tabs open in the workspace and
    be wary as sometimes when you go to debug your most recent
    application, it can compile/debug the one it keeps displaying.

    But in general what Duncan said is also very valid.
