EclipseSW has a Bookmarks view that can be accessed (if it's not already in your perspective) via Window → Show View → Bookmarks.

Selecting Bookmarks View

The bookmarks that have been created are displayed in the Bookmarks view. As you can see, the new bookmark is displayed in the view along with one other bookmark.

Bookmarks View

Double-clicking on the bookmark in the Bookmarks view opens up an editor page with the particular file that the bookmark is located in, and the region of that file containing the bookmark is displayed in the visible area of the editor. Eclipse bookmarks are a great timesaver.
