Eclipse IDE Tip: Multiple Search Tabs

By default, Eclipse uses a single search tab to show results.   This means that if we search twice, the tab is repopulated with the second set of results.

This can get annoying when we want to refer to multiple search result sets at the same time.

The solution is to pin the Search tab.   Click on the Pin icon on the right-hand toolbar.

Pin the Search View

Pin the Search View

Now perform another search and notice that the results appear in a second Search tab.
