Zotero has a button, called "Locate", which is using OpenURL to locate the reference and provide a link to where the full-text can be downloaded from (given that it is available at your library)
This is a very useful service, as it makes literature search much easier and faster. At the moment I am using Zotero for that, but the possibility to do it in JabRef, would be brilliant. I don't think it would be to difficult to implement, as the only thing that needs to be done is creating the URL and then open it in a webbrowser.
Details about OpenURL:
An example on how thi is used, can be found in the Firefox extension ( http://www.openly.com/openurlref/ ) which creates OpenURLs for e.g. Google Scholar searches.
As mentioned, I think this would be a very valuable addition to JabRef and should not involve to much work.
Unfortunately, I don't have any experience with Java, so I woun't be able in helping.
Thanks a lot for a brilliant reference manager,
