Refactoring in the DVT Eclipse IDE - How to Perform Rename Refactoring


Sometimes you need to change the name of a class, module, function or signal. This operation, known as Rename Refactoring, requires changing both the declaration and all of the usages of the renamed element.

Unlike plain text search and replace, Rename Refactoring in DVT is accurate. This is because in the DVT Eclipse IDE the code is compiled, each identifier is resolved, and only the relevant occurrences are updated by Rename Refactoring.
