    Default package (class/interface/method) dependency report?


    I have been looking for - unsuccessfully - for a utility or an Eclipse plugin which would perform static analysis of the code and generate information about dependencies on attributes/methods of classes/interfaces of a particular package.

    Say, the classes in input package/directory rely on some other package(s) in the classpath:

    import packageA.*;
    class myClass {
    	void method1() {
    	packageA.ifcA i = packageA.classB.attrC;
    	double d = i.methoD();

    the output would be
    myClass -> packageA.ifcA.methodD
    myClass -> packageA.classB.attrC

    Is there such utility you are aware of? Or perhaps you could recommend some utility which would allow creating custom code analysis - so that I could write one with this particular purpose?

    Thanks a lot in advance, Bob

    IntelliJ IDEA has dependency analysis built-in: Forward dependencies, backward dependencies, cyclic dependencies, and module dependencies. The Community Edition is free and open-source.
