When a method parameter is being renamed using action Refactor > Rename... and the user choses to rename the method parameter also in comments, the scope of renaming should be limited only to the Javadoc of the method.

Limiting method parameter rename to the scope of the method
IMHO limiting the scope of rename only to the javadoc, is too restrictive. At least I would find reasonable to add a comment referring to the parameter anywhere, where the parameter could be used. And in that case, those references in the comments should be renamed as well.
So in the patch, I limited the scope of the rename only to comments before the method, and to comments within the method body.
Tomasi, what do you think about this patch? Can you please integrate it if you don't have any comments? Thanks!
I will look at it tonight or tomorrow. Sorry I am very busy now.
The patch seems fine to me. Thanks for it and feel free to integrate.
Tomasi, Gabor does not have a push access to our Hg repository. Could you please integrate the patch on his behalf? Many thanks!
OK, I will do it.
