Few things when using Eclipse
Workspace is locked.
If you encounter the situation which Eclipse says:
“Could not launch the product because the associated workspace is currently in use by another Eclipse application.” or “Workspace in use or cannot be created, chose a different one.”
Just delete the
.lock file in the
.metadata directory in your eclipse workspace directory.
