Not quite. Though its easy to inspect any project and see its dependencies
(just look for //dependency in the project.xml of a Maven built project).

Maven can take care of that for you. Or Maven can generate an Ant build file
that does it for you? Or if you just wanted an XML file containing the
dependencies, try reusing the project.xml? If you want a String of what the
classpath should be for a projet, I'm sure that'd be easy to do also.
Either a new Maven plugin or a little bit of Jelly code in your maven.xml
