I am using the new (?) facility built in WindowBuilder to create moderately simple Jface applications (no plugin/RCP stuff!)

Problem is whenever I upgrade my eclipse installation I need t manually rewire all libraries to the new installation (they point to *very* specific locations").

Worse yet I have several projects I develop under win/linux and this is a bigger PITA.

Is there some [semi]automated way to "upgrade" the project?
Should I revert to the old way(check-out SWT & Jface and build from source)?

The SWT/JFace Project wizard is primarily provided as a very simple way to get started with SWT. If you are doing something more sophisticated, I would recommend creating an Eclipse RCP project. It will handle most of the classpath issues for you.

If you do want to update your existing project, you could try what I do which is to create a brand new SWT project and then copy the classpath entries from the new project's .classpath file to the .classpath file of the original project. Takes about 30 seconds or so.
