The JDepend Plugin is a plugin to generate JDepend reports for builds. More documentation is forthcoming, but the quickstart is:
- Download the JDepend plugin from the Update Center
- Enable for a project by checking "Report JDepend" under the "Post-build actions" of your project
- Run a build
- View the build page once it has completed, and you should see a "JDepend" entry on the left sidebar.
The JDepend plugin does not currently report the health of a project, as the sheer number of metrics available in a JDepend report makes it very difficult to find any sort of reasonable estimate of what makes a healthy project. This is one of the times when human intuition might be best!
