I have two Java projects managed with different dependency/delivery tools and want to know the differences of the required dependencies.
I am using Linux (CentOS) in a VM but a Windows solution can be acceptable.
The first project which is the original is based on Ant scripting and the dependencies are hardcoded somewhere there, all the needed libraries in a
lib folder, and then a
build.properties have a mapping
The second project is a maven project based on the first one but we added and updated some dependencies.
My goal is to find a tool (if it exists) to make a report thats say something similar to this:
Project 2 - new dependencies:
- Joda Time version 2.1
- Google GSON version 3.2
- Apache CXF 2.5
- DWR version 3.2-beta
Project 2 - updated dependencies:
- Apache commons lang from 1.2 to 1.6
- Apache Commons IO from 2.1 to 2.4
- slf4j From 2.4 to 2.6
Project 2 - removed dependencies
- Log4j version 1.2
- Castor version 2.1
Note: the version are not reflecting the reality, it is just to show an example.
