The Component Dependencies view allows you to see the dependencies for a selected Ant component. If the view is not displayed, it can be opened by selecting it from the Window > Show View menu.

If you want to see the dependencies of an Ant component, select the desired component in the editor or Outline view and choose the Component Dependencies action from the contextual menu. The action is available for the following components: properties, targets, extension-points, and references (those that have an ID set).

The following toolbar actions are available in the Component Dependencies view:
Refresh
Refreshes the dependencies structure.
Stop
Stops the dependencies computing.
Configure
Allows you to configure a search scope to compute the dependencies structure. You can decide to use automatically the defined scope for future operations by selecting the corresponding checkbox.
History
Allows you to repeat a previous dependencies computation.
The following actions are available from the contextual menu:
Go to First Reference
Selects the first reference of the referenced component from the current selected component in the dependencies tree.
Go to Component
Shows the definition of the current selected component in the dependencies tree.
Tip: If a component contains multiple references to another, these references are listed in a table displayed at the bottom of Component Dependencies view. When a recursive reference is encountered, it is marked with a special icon .
