I tried that, but it does not find all dependencies. You have to parse 
the whole class file, to find out about the dependencies. Not only the 
constant pool. The constant pool defines utf8 strings, that contain class 
names. Not all utf8 strings are referenced by other entries in the 
constant pool. Some are only referenced by the method infos and field 
infos in the body of the class file.
