I have a simple problem with Eclipse. In my workspace i have one project for my game engine and one project for each game/application that uses the engine. I include the engine into the build path of all the other projects so i can use it. My engine has a couple of build in shaders that reside in text files in the engine project. The engine obviously needs to read all of these shaders when it runs but since im not running the engine project but instead the project that uses the engine the application cannot access the shaders..... Seems that by default you can only access data in the project that youre running. Its getting realy anoying copying shader files everywhere when i make one small change. I can probely write a script to constantly copy the shaders around but there should be a better way.

In Eclipse how can i enable my game project to have acces to the shader files in my engine project?

Thnx in Advance!
