For development on Eclipse using multiple workspaces, the following ICO and PNG files might come in handy.
The ZIP file listed below contains a set of Eclipse ICO and PNG files. You can use the Eclipse icons to identify your Eclipse workspace such as:
- J = Java
- C = C/C++
- H = HTML/Web Development
- O = Open Source Projects
- F = File System
You can manage multiple Eclipse workspaces as follows. Edit the shortcut icon in the Quick Launch folder for each of your Eclipse shortcuts and set the path to your workspace in question:
<ECLIPSE_DIR>/eclipse.exe -data c:\path\workspace1
Unfortunately, this will not allow you to replace the icon in the taskbar/application icon. However, there is a quick and dirty solution for that. If you would like to display the same icon in the taskbar, replace eclipse.png in your Eclipse installation folder: <ECLIPSE_DIR>/plugins/org.eclipse.sdk_3.4.1_xxx/eclipse.png. Please note you will need one Eclipse installation folder per icon. Alternatively, the more complex solution is to create a custom Eclipse product if having multiple nearly duplicate Eclipse folders is not feasible for you.

Please note the procedure is very likly similar on Linux and Macintosh.
