Subject Dependency Finder - an open source tool for managing class and package dependencies
Date Wed, 26 Nov 2003 17:44:00 GMT

Here's a new entry for the list of external tools.

Dependency Finder extracts dependencies and OO metrics from
Java class files produced by most Java compilers. It can compute
API differences between versions;  no sources needed. It includes
Ant tasks, web, Swing, and command-line interfaces, with XSL
stylesheets for formatting output.

You can use it to extract dependencies between packages, classes,
or even methods, or any combination thereof.  You can use Perl
regular expressions to filter the information and pinpoint only
what you need.  There is even a Web Application version (WAR file)
so a whole group of developers can share a common view.

Dependency Finder is an open source tool hosted by

I've attached the output from "diff -u" for the "external.xml" file.
