Any Dependency Tool

Hi friends,

I'm in search of a dependency tool that shows all the classes that depend on one specific class. For example, I have a class (named) A which depends on classes (named) One, Two and Three. Also the classes One, Two and Three again depend on some other classes. I need to separate the class A and all its dependent classes and make a jar.

Is there any tool that shows this kind of dependencies?

Any help on this will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Do you want JDepend?

Hi Daesung Park,

First of all Thanks a lot for the response .

I think 'JDepend' would be helpful to some extent. But the classes that I need to separate out are so tightly coupled in the application such that it has dependency with most of the packages. So if there were to be some tool that directly shows fully qualified names of all the dependent classes, that would be great. If you have any information about such kind of a tool, please let me know.

Thanks/ Sandeep.
I agree. Here's the link:
