Say I have multiple files opened in Eclipse IDE. I just want Eclipse to show the file in the Project file tree, when I have certain file opened.

Just like in NetBeans. In NetBeans when you focus on some opened file, the left tree will be updated and the file will be located in the left (files tree).

There is an icon which looks like two horizontal arrows, select this (so it is depressed, it's a toggle button with the tooltip 'Link to Editor') and changing tabs should now refocus the selected item in the explorer.
