Description emiddio 2009-01-23 20:57:03 UTC
within a project with source code you can via project/properties/run -- choose a main method, args, etc.

sometimes i have a jar file i want to run a main method from -- but no source code -- i would like to be able to
go something similar to what can be done with a project with source -- get a dialog with list of mains i could
run and ability to set args -- then run the class -- without source code being present.
