>                 Key: MSHARED-632
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MSHARED-632
>             Project: Maven Shared Components
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: maven-dependency-analyzer
>            Reporter: Jonathan Haber
>            Priority: Minor
> We use the maven-dependency-plugin to analyze dependencies and fail our build 
> if there are any used undeclared or unused declared dependencies. In the case 
> of used undeclared dependencies, it is often helpful to know which classes 
> are being used and where they are being used. We've found a few workarounds 
> to make this a little easier, but the plugin has access to this information 
> so what we really want is for the plugin to just print this info along with 
> each used undeclared dependency. We've made this change in our fork and our 
> developers are very happy with it, so I'd like to contribute it back 
> ([here|https://gist.github.com/jhaber/d8204829fe61569e0034250df74300fb] is an 
> example of the output before and after the change).
> If you agree this is a useful feature, the first step is to update the 
> maven-dependency-analyzer to return this information so that the 
> maven-dependency-plugin can use it.
