7 Refactoring Support > NetBeans Refactoring Architecture

NetBeans Refactoring Architecture

NetBeans architecture supports a Refactoring API on which the Refactoring module has been implemented. The API can be referenced at the NetBeans API website covering Javadoc documentation on all NetBeans APIs: http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/javadoc/. You may find this link beneficial if you are interested in contributing and improving the module, or if you are just interested in seeing the underpinnings of the API.

Remember that refactoring does not change the functionality of the code, improve performance, or fix bugs (for example, threading issues). The process does not improve system qualities such as flexibility, security, capacity, or availability. Refactoring simply improves the structure of the code. And as you’ve seen in the introduction and will now see in detailed examples, refactoring is an important part of the development process.
