I'm an active developer for LaTeX, most notably with the package siunitx for formatting numbers and units. In my day job I work as a chemist, and so you'll see I write a number of chemistry-related LaTeX packages. I'm also a member of the LaTeX3 Project, working on improving LaTeX with the eventual aim of producing LaTeX3. To keep people up to date with my TeX work and anything else TeX-related I see, I have a blog on TeX matters. I'm also keen on helping other TeX users, and so I try to watch the various places that people go for help. I'm also on the committee of the UK TeX Users' Group. So I pop up all over the TeX world!

For the avoidance of doubt, any code of mine that I publish on http://tex.stackexchange.com/ I hereby place in the public domain to the extent governable by law. Explicitly, I place it under the CC0

Also check that the file in question is not open in another program: Adobe Reader is a 'usual suspect' here.

comment Facilitate switching between latex (eps) and pdflatex (png/pdf) in the same paper
In addition to what @daleif says, if you have EPS versions of everything then a modern TeX system will auto-convert to PDF as required. So what I'm trying to get at is can you arrange to have that full set of EPS graphics?

comment Facilitate switching between latex (eps) and pdflatex (png/pdf) in the same paper
Do you have (or can you generate) graphics in both formats?

@subhamsoni LaTeX/BibTeX can't just assume you mean 'everything' if there are no citations. Try adding \nocite{*} to your input then doing LaTeX/BibTeX/LaTeX/LaTeX.

Creating a list of references in a LaTeX document is independent of JabRef (as @Johannes_B says, it's a nice front end for editing .bib files but nothing more). The usual questions that apply here are 'Did you run LaTeX, BibTeX, LaTeX, LaTeX?' and 'Does your LaTeX file have any citations in it?'.

The standard setting for JabRef certainly do include number on the Optional Fields table for a article entry. Moreover, you can add any fields you like on the BibTeX source tab or customise the appearance of entry types in the Preferences. So I'm not quite sure where the real issue is here!
