  Managing Your Dependencies with JDepend
Subject:   Pasta, anyone?

The tool I use for this stuff is Pasta, a very nifty free download from Compuware (not open source though)


http://javacentral.compuware.com/pasta/


While it does the metric thing, it can also refactor your code should you decide to move things between packages etc, and its UI is nicer than Jdepend's. Thoroughly recommended.


For a more static view with more metrics, I also like PMD (http://pmd.sf.net/)

    I have used both Pasta and JDepend. I like Pasta because it gives you nice GUI interface to see the dependencies among packages. However, they are *NO* longer free version to download. I don't know if I have old copy of download because I got a new computer. So I guess I'm stuck with JDedend.

      I got a new info after digging PAST website.

      The following is from PASTA website

      <pasta>
      Free Edition

      A free edition of the Package Structure Analysis Tool is no longer available for download. This edition is fully functional, except that the functionality to refactor the source has been disabled. A full version is part of the OptimalJ suite.
      </pasta>

      However, PASTA has been superceed by "OptimalAdvisor"

      http://javacentral.compuware.com/pasta/whatisnew.htm

      There is a free version of OptimalAdvisor. I have not tried it yet but I will try the latest version as soon as my registration goes through.
