Does anyone have a simple java refactoring tool needed more implementation work? I have a student who can build up more functions based on your tool. Thanks.

Get your student to contribute to Eclipse or NetBeans so that their work can be enjoyed by as wide an audience as possible.

Personally, I'd prefer if you'd contribute to Eclipse...

He is a undergraduate student. I am afraid that it is hard to use Eclipse.

I'm sorry, but Eclipse is one of the simplest-architected, best-documented systems on the planet. What kind of tool were you expecting, if Eclipse is too hard to work on? Building Eclipse plugins is well within the range of an undergraduate course -- in fact we're planning that for UNC-Chapel Hill next year.

Lili, your student will get much more valuable experience if she does her exercise in a "real-world" environment like into Eclipse, as opposed to doing it as a detached, purely academic exercise.
From my personal university experience and subsequent commercial experience, I know that just about all the programming and software engineering labs (beyond the first Programming 101 or equivalent) were borderline useless in teaching real skills for commercial software development, which is never as neat and tidy as in academia.
