Folks,

We are planning to modify the refactoring framework used by the Java EE
Tools as documented in
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=261555 during WTP 3.1 M6.
Please be aware that the current refactoring framework, which utilizes the
DataModel framework, is insufficient for our needs- for example, it
provides no preview of the changes (and indeed, provides no UI at all).
Instead, we will be reutilizing the LTK framework that is provided by base
Eclipse. (This gives us consistency with other refactoring operations,
which includes the preview UI.) As such, we are asking for a review of
this behavior change by the community. Please post any comments to
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=261555 . Also note that a
small step in this direction was already added into WTP 3.0.4 via the
preference in https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=260459 which
allows for the disabling of the refactoring done via the DataModel
framework.
And, to be clear, this change will not be committed until after Feb. 9,
2009, to ensure adequate time for review and comment, and thus will not be
part of WTP 3.1 M5.

FWIW,

- Carl Anderson
WTP programmer
