Does anybody know of a static analysis tool that will allow me to find classes that are not used. I've looked at JProbe, and that doesn't seem to have this ability. I've also looked at PMD, which looks to have alot of neat static analysis tools, but they are all class level rather than project level.
Reason: Working on a rather large project. Have gone through a number of redesigns/refactors. We know there are a fair number of classes that are not used anymore, but going one by one and checking for dependencies is a tedious operation that we really don't have time for.

I have heard that IntelliJ IDEA has the ability I'm looking for. Does anybody have any experience with this?
It's to large for me to download at work, I'll have to wait until I get home, then bring it in, but It'd be nice to hear if it will do the trick before I go through the effort.
Also we are using eclipse for development, if IDEA has this ability I'd be surprised if somebody hasn't written an eclipse plugin to do it also, but I sure can't find it.
