Jedit and MidnightCommander (fwd)

I'm forwarding this to the apropriate mailing list though
this is not an MC issue. Just a hint - maybe you should
investigate whether JEdit has an option that allows to open
files in an existing instance.

My aim is taht when pressing "Enter" while in MC we will open a text file
with JEdit.
(On Linux).
Following a post in this list I had updated my .binding file so it contains
now 2 additional lines:
        Open=jedit %f

It does open the text file in JEdit when pressing Enter button while in MC;
the problem is
that if there is one instance of JEdit running, it does not open it in that
instance, but opens
a new instance. Is there a way to avoid opening a second (and third, and so
on) instance ?

JEDit is relativel heavy (written in Java) so this poses a memory burden and
takes time
