The snippet below will close all Editors in the workbench when you close the eclipse application.

IWorkbench workbench = PlatformUI.getWorkbench();
final IWorkbenchPage activePage = workbench.getActiveWorkbenchWindow().getActivePage();
 
workbench.addWorkbenchListener( new IWorkbenchListener()
{
    public boolean preShutdown( IWorkbench workbench, boolean forced )
    {                            
        activePage.closeEditors( activePage.getEditorReferences(), true);
        return true;
    }
 
    public void postShutdown( IWorkbench workbench )
    {
 
    }
});


The example below shows how to close an editor that is programmatically opened.

IWorkbench workbench = PlatformUI.getWorkbench();
final IWorkbenchPage activePage = workbench.getActiveWorkbenchWindow().getActivePage();
 
final IEditorPart editorPart = IDE.openEditorOnFileStore( activePage, fileStore );
 
workbench.addWorkbenchListener( new IWorkbenchListener() {
    public boolean preShutdown( IWorkbench workbench, boolean forced )     {                            
        activePage.closeEditor(editorPart, true);
        return true;
    }
 
    public void postShutdown( IWorkbench workbench )
    {
 
    }
});
