Script to view a jars transitive dependencies

by 5/08/2017 12:26:00 PM 0 comments
Very often when I'm programming in Java, I need to see the dependencies for a particular jar file. If you are working in a project using a build tool like Maven or SBT, it's quite trivial to dump out a dependency tree of all the jars in the project. Outside of the project it's a pain, generally you have to throw together a quick project and then run your tool on it. As a workaround, I threw together a script that does that for you (and cleans up afterwards) Just copy the code into a file named `mvntree`. You should tweak the included repositories to reflect ones that you may need. To run it use:

mvntree groupId artifactId version


For example:

mvntree edu.ucar netcdf4 4.6.9


mvntree

#!/usr/bin/env bash

# Usage: mvntree groupId artifactId version

CUR_DIR=$(pwd)
MY_DIR="/tmp/trashme_one"

mkdir -p "$MY_DIR" && \
  cat > "$MY_DIR/pom.xml" <<EOL
