Nexus Artifact Usage plugin

This nexus plugin allows the user to get the list of artifacts depending on a given artifact; some people call this backward dependencies.

How to build :

Simply clone this repo and run mvn clean install

How to install :

Unzip the archive in target named to NEXUSHOME/nexus/WEB-INF/plugin-repository and restart nexus.

Or simply download the latest release

How to use :

Simply search for an artifact and select the "Artifact Usage" tab : Screenshot

This plugin stores the dependencies information in memory every time an artifact is uploaded or deleted; so every time you restart nexus, all the information is lost. Don't worry though, you can automate the artifact usage indexing through a scheduled task : Screenshot
