Multiple Result Windows

Sometimes one need to compare or use results from one query to do some analysis and run other queries using some of data from previous run.
At present I could not find the feature which allows users to see multiple results window at one time. You can provide some "pin the window" feature which when pressed will
preserve the result set. and if we run new query its results will be populated in new result tab.

Currently you may open two SQL editors for some connection, execute queries and view resultsets by switching between editors.
But of course it is not possible to view multiple editors at the same time. Actually it is an Eclipse restriction (btw Eclipse doesn't support "Pin window" feature too).
But, you can open two different DBeaver windows (main menu Window-> Open in new window) and execute different queries in different windows. Tricky thing :)

We have plans to implement support of multiple restsets feature - some databases can produce more than one resultset for a single query while current DBeaver version can visualize only first one. I think we'll combine this feature with "resultset save" by adding extra tabs in resultset window.
