Dependency trees in Nexus and Maven: who uses what ?

Nexus plugin to display who uses a given artifact https://github.com/saleemshafi/nexus-artifact-usage-plugin (apparently the same info is built-in in Apache Archiva https://stackoverflow.com/questions/19392236/who-is-using-my-maven-artifact ). As suggested in SO, you should build a ├╝ber-POM containing all your projects, then generate the dependency tree.

Useful commands:

mvn dependency:tree -DoutputType=graphml -DoutputFile=dependency.graphml

(use also --debug in case of errors)

Here the documentation on Dependency Management in Maven https://maven.apache.org/guides/introduction/introduction-to-dependency-mechanism.html
