Subject Apache Maven JDeps Plugin
Date Sat, 14 Feb 2015 15:32:23 GMT

during FOSDEM 2015 a few members of the Apache Maven team visited a talk  
of Oracle, presented by Rory O'Donnell and Dalibor Topic.
Their talk ended with encouraging everybody to use the JDeps tool to  
analyze your dependencies in preparation of JDK9s jigsaw.
On behalf of the Maven team I've picked up the task to develop a plugin  
which can do the analysis during the build of a Java project. Call it a  
thin Maven wrapper around the JDeps tool.

The sources can be found here:

The documentation can be found here:

There's a SNAPSHOT version availabe at

The plugin is still in development, but now would be an appropriate moment  
to share your thoughts on what this plugin should do. For instance: break  
the build if the project depends on JDK internal APIs (already  
So please, share your ideas.

ps. Quite a lot of users relate the plugin version to the Maven version.  
For that reason the maven-jdeps-plugin version starts with 3.0, indicating  
you need to use at least Maven-3.
ps2. Documentation already refers to Apache Maven 3.2.6, even though it is  
not released yet. Chances are that Maven 3.2.6 will be released before  
Maven JDeps Plugin 3.0
