Why I do need this plug-in?

December 6, 2008

The short version answer: because Eclipse does have issues in the refactoring of “partial” JSP files. Eclipse does a wonderful job providing great refactoring tools but, unfortunately, at least until the Ganymede’s latest release, partial JSP files aren’t take into consideration when you do rename a method. I do consider the rename refactoring the simplest refactoring in the Eclipse umbrella: it takes one method name and do a dumb string substitution in the whole project by another method name, simple as that.

Apartial JSP file is any file without the jsp file extension used with a <%@ include> or with a <jsp:include>.
