Thanks Dan & Patricia for your suggestions,

I'm still struggling with the graph output, it's a lot of data, perhaps 
too much, the PNG turned out to be 30MB, for all dependency links in 
River, originating from PersistentOutriggerImpl.

I've attached the text file used to generate the graph.

I'll have to get back to you.
