159. Renaming Java Projects, Packages and Classes in Eclipse IDE






In Eclipse, we can rename the Java Projects, Packages and Classes. We have to use 'Refactor -> Rename' option to rename the items in Eclipse IDE.

Lets implement this on Eclipse IDE -

Create a Java Project, a package and a Class in Eclipse IDE, and rename them using 'Refactor' -> 'Rename' option.

1. Launch Eclipse IDE, Create a Java Project 'Project 008' as shown below -


2. Right Click on the Java Project 'Project 008' and select 'Refactor -> Rename' option as shown below -


3. Observe that 'Rename Java Project' dialog is displayed with 'New name' field and change the name from Project 008 to Project 009 and click on 'OK' button as shown below -


4. Observe that the Java Project name got renamed to 'Project 009' under Package explorer as shown below -


5. Create a Package 'package_008' under Renamed Java Project 'Project 009' as shown below -


6. Right Click on the Package 'package_008' and select 'Refactor -> Rename' option as shown below -


7. Observe that 'Rename Package' dialog is displayed with 'New name' field and change the name from 'package_008' to 'package_009' and click on 'OK' button and save as shown below -


8. Observe that the Package name got renamed to 'package_009' under Package explorer as shown below -

9. Create a Class 'Class008' as shown below -


10. Right Click on the Class 'Class008' and select 'Refactor -> Rename' option as shown below -


11. Observe that 'Rename Compilation Unit' dialog is displayed with 'New name' field and change the name from 'Class008' to 'Class009' and click on 'Finish' button and save as shown below -


12. Observe that the Class name got renamed to 'Class009' under Package explorer as shown below -


Hence use 'Refactor' -> 'Rename' option to rename Project, Package and Class in Eclipse IDE.
