An EclipseSW bookmark allows you to quickly go to a particular line of code in a particular file. If you find that there is a particular piece of code that you need to keep returning to, a bookmark is a great way of creating a shortcut to that code.
To create a bookmark, I can right-click in the gray border on the left side of my editor and go to 'Add Bookmark...'
