In Java development, if you have a private attribute with corresponding public getter/setter pair, this is usually treated as just one property. NetBeans has the ability to rename this getter and all it’s occurrencies in the Java sources. The same way, NetBeans supports to rename the setter.

Within a JSF page, you just use this getter/setter pair as a single attribute. How shall NetBeans perform a rename? It can’t. But if NetBeans would rename both, getter and setter, with just one refactoring step, it would be able to rename it within the JSF page too.

If you like such a feature, please support my proposal for enhancement by voting for it here [1].
