Tidying up my JAR files, any applications that will clean them?

I started writing a web application and I got into a very bad habit of chucking in every jar file that came with the technology I was using.

Hibernate, Struts2, spring, etc etc.

I'm now in the regretable position of having 94 jar files, and I know that my source code is using duplicate classes. To take them out one at a time and test might kill me.

Is there any application that I can point to my source code and point to my jars and it will say "you do not need that and you should keep that, you have duplicates in these jars, remove one"?

Thanks in advance.

David,
I don't know, but I think people in the IDEs and other tools forum would be more likely to know. I'll move your thread there.
