Allow folder and script file name changes in IBM Rational Functional Tester (RFT)

We adopted IBM RFT for our functional test use. This tool is based on Eclipse.  

For regular Eclipse Java related project, it is very easy to make changes on Folder/File name changes. Since during the development, it is very common for the team to adjust the project folder structure, file name etc.

When we use RFT, we found it can not change folder name and very difficult to change script name as well.

We opened folder name ticket TS011335041, we were told it is not supported at this moment.

We tried to change script name. (Script was working), and found some issues that newly name changed script does not work properly.


It would be nice for RFT to behave like what regular Eclipse java project did to allow developer to easily change folder or file name, once name changed, it automatically populate the changes to where it needs, like class path in import etc.
