I wonder if the was the chance to keep Bib file all in a
separate project and then referencing them form the
single TeX projects? If it is possible how can I do this? If
it is not will it be a planned feature?

Cheers,

Luigi

    You can keep your bib files in a separate project, but at
    least in the 1.0 version of TeXlipse the cite completion
    won't work these "external" bib files. We are going to fix
    this somewhere in the next releases.

    However, document building works fine with this setup:
    1) create a project for your bib files (e.g. project "bibs")
    2) copy your bib files to that project
    3) create a latex project with the main file in the project dir
    4) add reference to the bib file:
    "\bibliography{../bibs/bibfile1.bib}"

    I agree, this would be very helpful. I keep all my bibtex
    files in one Eclipse project which is stored in CVS and
    shared with others. With other editors, I can just reference
    these files by typing

    \bibliography{../sharedreferences/ant,../sharedreferences/infrastructure,../sharedreferences/actionresearch}

    This is currently not supported by TeXlipse, at least I
    can't make it work.
