Permission denied on Serial port open

Hi all!

I'm trying to open a serial port in a Linux machine and I get a RuntimeException in the open() method of CommPortIdentifier:
Error opening "/dev/ttyS0"
Permission denied
How can i run the program as root or with root permissions?
I'm running it from Eclipse.

Thanks!
