Rename servlet plugin?

I have created a servlet plugin module and then I want to change its name. But the atlassian-plugin.xml does not update the class name automaticly.

Manually changing the class name works. But is there some side effect?

there are two scenarios

1)you want to rename "Servlet plugin name" go to pom.xml change <artifactId>new servlet plugin name</artifactId>

<name>new name</name>

once you compile in this way you could see change your servlet plugin name.

2) you want to rename the specific class- Make appropreate changes in the class first change class name.

replace entry with new class in the can see internaly class change but you can-not view it.

Changing the class name in atlassian-plugin.xml wont update the class name automatically .

I dont think it will cuase any side effect .

I hope you have renamed the class name wherever it was earlier being used.

Is there a way to remove a module?

You will have to remove it from the atlassian-plugin.xml . You can also disable it after you install the plugin . What are you trying to do ?
