[java] Eclipse: stop code from running (java)

Sometimes, I'll run a program that accidentally contains an infinite loop or something. Eclipse will let me continue editing the program, but be super slow. How can I stop it? (Do I want to restart the JVM?) Restarting eclipse itself always works, but that breaks my workflow.

The answer is


The easiest way to do this is to click on the Terminate button(red square) in the console:

For newer versions of Eclipse:

  1. open the Debug perspective (Window > Open Perspective > Debug)

  2. select process in Devices list (bottom right)

  3. Hit Stop button (top right of Devices pane)


For Eclipse: menu bar-> window -> show view then find "debug" option if not in list then select other ...

new window will open and then search using keyword "debug" -> select debug from list

it will added near console tab. use debug tab to terminate and remove previous executions. ( right clicking on executing process will show you many option including terminate)


I have a .bat file on my quick task bar (windows) with:

taskkill /F /IM java.exe

It's very quick, but it may not be good in many situations!
