JBoss Tattletale - a jar file dependency utility

JBoss colleague Jesper Pedersen built a very useful utility for discovering jar file interdependencies, JBoss Tattletale.

In his own words:

The tool will provide you with reports that can help you

  • Identify dependencies between JAR files
  • Find missing classes from the classpath
  • Spot if a class is located in multiple JAR files
  • Spot if the same JAR file is located in multiple locations
  • Identify JAR file versions
  • With a list of what each JAR file requires and provides
  • Verify the SerialVersionUID of a class

Discuss in the forum and download the first Beta from here.
