Hey, All,

I have a plug-in project, which has a lot of dependencies. Recently I
realized that some dependencies are not necessary. It will be great to
remove them to reduce program size. Is there any analysis tool that help
to determine unnecessary dependencies? It would help to safe the removal.

Thanks so much for any hint or help!

Best Regards,
Frank

In the Dependencies Tab of your plugin.xml editor, look for "Find unused
dependencies" under the Dependency Analysis section. That should help you

Hi Prakash,

Thank you so much for the reply. I didn't notice the tool before. It's so
great!

But there is a pity with the tool. One of my plug-ins uses XML validator
from WST XML plug-in. It seems that the validation builders are controlled
and run by:

org.eclipse.externaltools

But the analysis indicates that the externaltools plug-in is unnecessary.
With the plug-in, the validation will stop working. Any idea about how to
avoid such issues?

Again, thank you so much for the help!

Best Regards,
Frank
