I am using Eclipse Helios SR2 for JEE Developers on Windows Vista 32-bit version.

When I tried to rename DashboardReports.java by pressing the F2 key, the dialog "Rename Compilation Unit" poped up, and it just stopped at "Creating workspace modifications..." I let it sit for 7 minutes with no progress. Eclipse is responding, it just won't let me exit the dialog, so I have to kill the eclipse.exe with Task Manager. I've attached a screenshot.

I don't know if this is a bug or a problem with my workspace. Let me know if I can provide you any more information to help determine the cause of the problem and the solution.

Cheers!

It will definitely help if you could file a bug with a reproducible testcase.

Maybe not everything here is required, but at least I got past the problem.

After killing Eclipse from the task manager, I opened it up again. Got a concurrent modification exception and dismissed (might have been unrelated). closed all projects. closed eclipse. opened eclipse. Window > Preferences > Validation. Then uncheck the Manual and Build boxes next to HTML Syntax Validator and JSP Syntax Validator. close project. close eclipse. open eclipse. open project. refactor > rename now works.

I think the problem is that this project has a badgillion jsps and I never wait for it to actually validate them all. I just kill that process.

Ok, that previous post might have been a red herring; I got the same error even after turning off that syntax validation!

But what I did is UNcheck "Update references" and then hit "next". Then I hit "back", CHECKED "Update references", and at least it didn't hang. It didn't update the references, though, hehe. So wherever that class was referenced, I got a compile error. This is pretty crappy. I've used Helios for a while...maybe it's time for Indigo.

One more bit of information...my "success" above only works one time per Eclipse startup. In other words, if I do a second refactor > rename, it hangs (irrespective of the update references setting).
