Thanks for your answer, I didn't know about svn:externals, and it
worked perfectly.

I edited the svn:external property on a folder with subclipse and it
was detected as an external folder. But when I tried to update it
didn't retrieve the code from this external repository (update !=
checkout). I had to make the checkout from the shell and then it
worked (I could update and commit).

What I mean is that subclipse miss a feature to retrieve data from an
external project when a folder was detected as external. Or I missed
something :)
