    Question Problem with debugging and running (Eclipse)

    Hi everyone! I'm new to the forum and i'm just starting to get into java for real. I recently reinstalled my IDE (Eclipse) and all SDK, JRE, JDK etc. cuz of a problem with running/debugging android apps in my environment. Now i got a fresh copy of Eclipse (Luna) and all the tools are freshly installed (and the running/debugging problem with android is better).

    But, i still have one problem that i believe is an easy fix if you got the answer.

    Every time i wanna debug or run something, i have to right-click my project -> run/debug as -> then specify what project i want to debug or run. Earlier i could just press run/debug in the toolbar and it would automatically choose the project or class i was working with.

    I'v been searching some for a way to fix this but dont got any "right on" answers.

    If some kindhearted soul would help me fix this it would me much appreciated!

    Thanks in advance!

    Edit: I solved this problem. It was a problem with linkin main method of my projects with the debugger. Thanks for your time!

    Every time i wanna debug or run something . . .
    Every time, or just the first time for each?

    Its every time. Then if i have debugged the projekt in that way i can debugg it via the toolbar. But if i switch project to run another project the run and debug in the toolbar is still set on the project i last debugged. Then i have to go into -> debug as -> create new -> select project -> select main file (witch sometimes is missing though i have a
    public static void main(String[] arg) {}
    in that file) then i can run the application. And as i explained in the () the project sometimes doesnt run cuz "main method missing, please insert public static void main(String arg) {}". But thats probably a whole different story

    Edit: Dont mind the second part. I fixed that and it was an embarrassing mistake
