My references aren't listed in my PDF file and all cites have a '?' symbol instead a number even in Texmaker my cites are selectable.

Here my tex file:

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{natbib}
\begin{document}

...

efficient inference in universal model classes \cite{PPWIKI}. On the other hand,

...

\bibliographystyle{style}
\bibliography{literature}
\end{document}

My bibtex file:

@online{PPWIKI,
author = {PROBABILISTIC-PROGRAMMING.org},
title = {The probabilistic programming approach},
year = {2014},
url = {http://probabilistic-programming.org/wiki/Home},
}

I following "Quickbuild" in Texmaker (texmaker v4.2 + miktex v2.9.5 on Windows 8):

PdfLaTex + Bib(la)tex + PdfLaTex (x2) + View Pdf

Any idea?

    style is not a valid bibliography style as far as I know. See Where can I find collections of bibliography styles? for many valid possibilities. – Paul Gessler Jul 8 '14 at 21:57

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Please make your code compilable (if possible), or at least complete it with \documentclass{...}, the required \usepackage's, \begin{document}, and \end{document}. That may seem tedious to you, but think of the extra work it represents for TeX.SX users willing to give you a hand. Help them help you: remove that one hurdle between you and a solution to your problem. – cfr Jul 9 '14 at 3:01

I identified 2 problems in your MWE:

  1. As @Paul Gessler said, in \bibliographystyle{style}, "style" is not a valid bibliography style. To read more about the different bibliography styles, check the link he provided or this one.

  2. I couldn't compile your literature.bib file, because the last element in the bibitem has a colon at the end (" url = {http://probabilistic-programming.org/wiki/Home}, ")

Fixing these two aspects I was able to compile your code.

Here is is my MWE:

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article} 
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{natbib}
\begin{document}

efficient inference in universal model classes \cite{PPWIKI}. On the other hand,

\bibliographystyle{plain}
\bibliography{literature}
\end{document}



###literature.bib

@online{PPWIKI,
author = {PROBABILISTIC-PROGRAMMING.org},
title = {The probabilistic programming approach},
year = {2014},
url = {http://probabilistic-programming.org/wiki/Home}
}

And here is the end result:
