    Why would you want to do this? Eclipse is an IDE. It's useful for writing and debugging code. Shell scripts are almost always executed from the command line. I suppose you could write a shell script in Eclipse but that seems like complete overkill to me when a simple text editor would work just fine. So, why do you need to execute shell scripts from Eclipse instead of from the command line?

    Thanks for the reply...
    Usually i will change the source code continously in eclipse itself(java), but we need to make build using shell/bash script and create rpm for that module/code.
    I can go out to command line execute but to increase productivity i am looking for better options in eclipse itself...

    can you please help me out.

    Well, I know that there are at least 2 out there: ShellEd (You can find that at and Wicked Shell (At Both are plugins for Eclipse, though I think Wicked Shell is just a link from within the VM to your system shell while ShellEd is for writing and checking shell scripts within the IDE.

    I understand needing the functionality of seeing/checking the interaction of shell to java within an existing project.
