Re: [m2e-users] Code completion only for direct dependencies

I know the dependency:analyze goal, which does exactly, what I'd like to be integrated into m2e: Recognize dependencies, which aren't declared explicitly.
Igor, which other metadata do you think is needed? Wouldn't it be sufficient to check, if a dependency is declared directly in the project's pom?
In a non-maven project, .classpath would look like this:
<classpathentry kind="lib" path="libs/somelib.jar" sourcepath="libs/somelib.jar">
     <accessrule kind="nonaccessible" pattern="**"/>
Is it possible to define such "nonaccessible" rule for liraries within "org.eclipse.m2e.MAVEN2_CLASSPATH_CONTAINER"?
Best regards,

There is no notion of classpath access rules in Maven, so m2e simply does not have the metadata needed. Until this is supported in maven core, there is not much we can do in m2e.
