I am using the Mac version of Eclipse and I'm stumped as to what the Keyboard Shortcut for "Run as.." is.

The image looks like this:

I recognize the COMMAND key and the OPTION key, but whats the X key?

That's the X on your keyboard.

In Eclipse you have to press the X simultaneously and then release all of them and press J.

Brilliant! a bit tricky at first, but I'll get use to it, this should save me lots of time, cheers! :) – Doug Molineux Apr 8 '11 at 20:25

You hold down + simultaneously, then you press the X which open a small yellow popup like this:

where you then press J - and after that you release +.
