If you use the same ECLiPSe process to connect to the Java Applets, then yes,
there would be a single ECLiPSe. If you start up individual ECLiPSes for each
Java applet, then you will have different ECLiPSes (this sounds like what
you want).

There is then no issue of multiconnections. If you want to use remote ECLiPSe,
then just start a new ECLiPSe process for each Java Applet. If you use
out of process ECLiPSe (that is actually just a version of remote ECLiPSe), 
then a new ECLiPSe is automatically started.

If you are talking about the same ECLiPSe, then while it is blocking, waiting
for a remote connection, you cannot invoke a rpc to it from an already
connected Java program. For seperate ECLiPSes, then this is not an issue.

I think if you want to understand how the interface in more detail, you might
want to read our paper on it, which gives a high-level overview of the

A High-Level Generic Interface to External Programming Languages for ECLiPSe

It is available from our website:

Hopefully it explains things a bit better than the manuals!
