I had a lot of trouble with the refer/endnote importer, so I wrote a new refer-specific one. (Endnote is actually very different, though it looks very similar, and I don't know enough about it to do a good job.)

    Thank you for this contribution! Could you attach an example file for Refer - and one for Endnote as well, if possible? Can this importer distinguish the two formats in the isRecognizedFormat() method (so the autodetecting import will use the correct importer for both formats)?

    The next version of JabRef (and the current SVN version) will include a plugin system, where importers and some other items can be distributed as plugins. I will attach your importer here packaged as a plugin, just for fun, and to give an example of how to build importer plugins.

    I'm working on an improved version that does both formats, and fixes some of my errors and misunderstandings. To be continued...

    Ok, I'll wait for the update before doing anything about this.
