Dependencies - Components and Code
This exploration is a force-directed graph showing:
- The components in a given container.
- The code elements that make up each component.
- The relationships between components.
- The relationships between components and code elements.
Please note that this exploration does not show relationships between code elements. It does, however, show where code elements are shared between components. Arrows represent dependency relationships.
The colour coding is as follows:
Component Code Shared Code Highlighted Visibility
Hovering the mouse pointer over an element will show a tooltip with more detail about that element.
Highlighting direct connections
Click a node in the graph to highlight the other nodes that are directly connected to it.
If information about code visibility (public, package protected, internal, etc) is included in the software architecture model, a dropdown control will allow you to highlight all code elements with a given visibility.
In this example, all
public code elements have been highlighted with a red outline. This can be useful
to identify single-use code elements that may have been made public accidentally, like the
JdbcPetRepositoryImpl class here.
Filtering code elements with a regular expression
A regular expression can be used to filter the code elements that are included in the graph. For example:
.*- include all code elements.
repository- include all code elements that have
repositoryin the type name.
^(?!.*(model|util))- include all code elements that don't have
utilin the type name.
