Add refactoring capability to Java parser

                 Key: SEAMFORGE-172
                 URL: https://issues.jboss.org/browse/SEAMFORGE-172
             Project: Seam Forge
          Issue Type: Feature Request
          Components: Parsers / File Manipulation
    Affects Versions: 1.0.0.Alpha3
            Reporter: Dan Allen

Although challenging, the ability to refactor within a project would be immensely powerful for plugin writers. Basic refactoring include renaming types, fields and methods. Matching updates to resource files (XML, Java properties, etc) would also be useful. We could see how far that could take us before deciding if more complex refactoring is necessary.

I would suggest researching whether it's possible to extra the refactoring logic out of the Eclipse tooling into a reusable library (if it isn't already). Another option is RefactorIT, which used to be a proprietary plugin for the major Java IDEs but is now CDDL and GPL: http://sourceforge.net/projects/refactorit/
