Betreff: Re: [pde-ui-dev] Shouldn't renaming a bundle project also
update the bundle's symbolic name?
I believe the
Alt-Shift-R is a short cut which does a "shallow" rename. If
you use the context menu to rename, you will see a dialog box which will update
references by default. If this option is selected, the
Bundle-SymbolicName will be updated also.
Hope that helps,

Shouldn't renaming a bundle project also update the bundle's symbolic name?
I've been bitten by this a number of times now, so I'm wondering: If I
rename (Alt-Shift-R) a bundle project in the package explorer, why isn't the
bundle's symbolic name in the manifest updated also?
I understand that the project name and the bundle's symbolic name are
conceptually separate - you could name your project "foo" and your
bundle "bar". However in my projects they are consistently the same.
Assuming that this is often the case (correct me if I'm wrong), wouldn't it be
nice to have my bundle's symbolic name updated along with the project renaming?
Or at least have such an option?
