Dependency graph in Netbeans 6.8

It seems that I discover something new in Netbeans every day… The “Show dependency graph” associated with every Maven projects in Netbeans 6.8 had escaped me so far.

This menu option (accessible by right-clicking on a Maven project in the “projects” window) generates a graph of all the projects’ dependencies  (libraries declared in the pom and their transitive dependencies).

Example below of the dependency graph  of the libraries required by a project called, rather imaginatively, mavenproject1.

The graph will be rather hard to read for a large number of dependencies, but it’s nice to have nevertheless.
