"jdeps --inverse --require ..." - Reverse Dependencies

This section provides a tutorial example on how to use 'jdeps --inverse' command to show reverse dependencies of a given Java module.



If you want to see reverse dependencies of a given Java module, you can run the "jdeps --inverse --require module_name" command.

Let's use the "java.logging" module as an example:

C:\herong>jdeps --inverse --require java.logging

Inverse transitive dependences on [java.logging]
java.logging <- java.se
java.logging <- jdk.jshell
java.logging <- jdk.scripting.nashorn
java.logging <- jdk.security.jgss
java.logging <- java.rmi <- java.management.rmi
java.logging <- java.rmi <- java.se
java.logging <- java.rmi <- jdk.hotspot.agent
java.logging <- java.rmi <- jdk.jconsole
java.logging <- java.rmi <- jdk.jstatd
java.logging <- java.rmi <- jdk.naming.rmi
java.logging <- java.security.sasl <- java.se
java.logging <- java.security.sasl <- jdk.security.jgss
java.logging <- java.sql <- java.se
java.logging <- java.sql <- java.sql.rowset
java.logging <- java.sql.rowset <- java.se
java.logging <- java.xml.crypto <- java.se
java.logging <- java.security.sasl <- java.naming <- java.se
...

Cool. Now we know which JDK packages are using the "java.logging" module.
