Eclipse won't pick up Path Variables from Environment variables. You
can define your own Path Variables in the popup for linked resources.
Click on the New button and browse to the file system location. Each
developer then needs to define this variable in their own workspace.
You are able to get relative paths using special variable names that are
internal to Eclipse. You can setup the relative links using Drag and
Drop. Open up a system file navigator window (Explorer, Dolphin,
Nautilus, etc). Drag the external folder and drop it on the project in
the Eclipse Project Explorer. A dialog box will ask if you want to add
the folder to the project. Select Link to Files and Folders. You can
then select if the link should be relative to the project, workspace, or
a variable you create yourself.
