RUnning mvn dependency:tree gives you a graph that tells you all the modules that your module is dependent on. It's beautiful. What I want is the reverse of that. If I have a large multi-module project, and I change module A, I want to find all the modules that are dependent on module A

Yes, you can. Using filtering which comes with the dependency plugin.
