Is is possible to open a file by right-click -> open with -> Eclipse? When I try it it open Eclipse asks for workspace, when I select the existing workspace it starts Eclipse, but does not open the file. And if the workspace is already open, it says workspace in use...

Is there a way to overcome this problem, I want to make eclipse the default editor.

You can set a default workspace in your Eclipse config.ini. I think that should make it work.

Here's a link on how to do that.

Eclipse Zone
