Maven Dependency Overview

Maven Dependency Overview

Since I started working with Maven2 I always wanted to have a plug-in that would graph dependency.

For last few days I've been spending part of my free time on maven-overview-plugin.

And here it is in quite usable state.

You can include report with Dependency Overview, you can use it from command line, you can do some basic configuration.

To prove that it is actually useful I wrote short story of it's use: DependencyCleanUpShortStory.

Feel free to use it it is OS Licence.


  1. Hi Hubert,

    I know this is an old post but I know a nice dependency overview viewer. The only thing is you need Eclipse for it.

    I have been using it for a while and think it's pretty useful. The plug-in is from sonatype. You can check it out here if you like:


  2. @Salomo: Yes I've seen this one, but can it work headless host, and can it integrate with Project Reports as Maven Overview Plugin does?

    Ahhh, and I couldn't forget this one: I'm IntelliJ IDEA user :)

    Once Sonatype will hire me, I might port it to my favorite IDE ;-) and than +1 for m2idea :-)
