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 :

How to install :
Unzip the archive in target named artifact-usage-plugin-0.10.0-SNAPSHOT-bundle.zip to NEXUSHOME/nexus/WEB-INF/plugin-repository and restart nexus.
Or simply download the latest release
