Description Jesse Glick 2005-08-23 22:40:31 UTC
Would be nice if a rename refactoring for Foo.m1() -> Foo.m2() also offered to
rename FooTest.testM1() -> FooTest.testM2() if it existed. Would mean a dep
junit -> refactoring, I guess.

The test method name can also exactly match the renamed test (usually with the @Test annotation).
It is annoying to hunt for the test method each time I rename a method. Think, for example, when you rename a method in an interface! The impact could be in many tests! For the IDE help keeping test and base code in sync should be a must!
