RefactorIT is a new Java refactoring tool that’s been customized for Mac usage and “works nicely” on Mac OS X, the application’s author, Oliver Wihler, told MacCentral.

Refactoring consists of four basic phases aimed at streamlining existing code bases to make them more maintainable and easier to evolve. The process makes for healthier code and more consistent team productivity, Wihler said. Refactoring is only practical with tools that automate the labor-intensive activities of streamlining and reorganizing code bases — such as RefectorIT, he added.
RefactorIT is the first comprehensive refactoring tool targeted at the needs of corporate developers and is the first product to fully cover every part of the refactoring cycle, Wihler said. He said the product: Helps developers up the learning curve faster. Gives more leverage with larger Java code bases. Protects the integrity of your code. Doesn’t fill your code with unreadable, unmaintanable generated Java.
