Jim H. and John:

What Jim H. is proposing by adding *.java to the Preferences File Association 
isn't possible. By default the *.java extension  for the Java and Text editors 
are locked by the "Java Source File Content Type" and can not be added.

Since Eclipse is a full blown IDE, launching the IDE by merely double clicking 
a file with an extension of *.java makes no sense. Where would it be placed in 
a source folder?
