Subject:Feature Request: Refactoring Schemas Author:Adam Van den Hoven Date:04 Jan 2003 03:16 PM
I thought I'd start the new year by undertaking one of my favorite hobbies, trying to improve SS.
I was just thinking that it would be nice to have some refactoring tools to use with creating schemas. Refactoring is a common enough practice in software development, it should be easy to do something similar with schemas.
I'm thinking things like:
1) Gathering common elements and attributes into groups
2) Conversion of anonymous types into named types
3) Divide one file into many.
All of these have relatively fixed rules of how to do them so it should be easy (especially if I don't have to do it ;) to do.
Basically anything that can be brought over from an IDE like IntelliJ would be very nice.
