Well, I can think of two ways this could be solved.

The first is achievable today: just create a project with an Ivy 
Classpath Container and the desired ivy.xml. Export the Classpath 
container in the java build settings, and make your other projects' 
builds depend on this project. In this way, they will all inherit the 
classpath of the central project, which allows you to just to a 
Resolve on that project when you need to pick up changes.

Another solution would be to request a new feature of a periodic 
Resolve in the IvyDE container. That is, once every n minutes, the 
container could Resolve its configuration, with n being configurable 
per-project, or workspace-wide.
