[eclipse-dev] eclipsec.exe

Since the launchers were changed to load the Java VM in-process using the JNI invocation API, the launcher has had some issues with respect to the console on windows.
The wiki page here has some details: http://wiki.eclipse.org/index.php/Equinox_Launcher_Issues#Windows_Console

The result is that on windows we are now shipping a second executable: eclipsec.exe.  eclipse/eclipsec is analogous to javaw/java.  Eclipsec.exe is linked as a console application so that the OS will allocate a console for us.  This executable does not automatically add any arguments, so you still need to specify -console, -consoleLog, etc.
