I just spoke with someone complaining about renaming and keeping plugin.xml in sync.

* When you rename a service implementation (that is registered in your server plugin.xml) everything works fine.

* When you rename a service interface (located in the shared plugin but registered in the client plugin.xml) the renaming isn't taken in account in the plugin.xml.

This is a bug (or a limitation) from Eclipse, probably in JDT or PDE. It seems to be a problem for him. What do you think?

I've seen the same thing using Eclipse's Refactor->Rename mechanism to change the name of a service and/or interface. It seems not to update the plugin.xml occurences of the class name. However, as this leads to warnings it is fairly easy to pick up on, so not tragic in my point of view. I haven't actually tried to rename a service/interface using the Scout SDK so am not sure what the behaviour is there.

In my opinion renaming in general is a bit of a pain in Scout, as there so many classes generated when e.g. creating a form. However when renaming the form none of these generated classes are changed by the framework. I am still working on a pretty small POC with Scout and have not too much time pressure, so it is annoying but somehow manageable. But regarding using Scout in a real development project this might lead to some lost time and a potential source of errors. And if you want to create later a class with the same name, it does not work because the not renamed services/formData/etc classes already exist but would have to be created in order to create a form.
