Maven dialogs improvement proposal

Hello,

I just came up with two ideas to improve maven handling. I am using the current 9 release.

In a pom.xml I would like to be able to paste something like

net.sf.beanlib:beanlib-hibernate:jar:5.0.2beta:compile

and get either a dependency declaration or an exclusion if the cursos is inside of exclusions.

The mvn dependency:tree plugin produces this format.

I need this in most cases when dealing with very 'hungry' libraries pulling in the world.

The second feature id is in the maven projects panel on the right hand side. It is possible to navigate nicely in the tree but you cannot just right click and say 'exclude this'.

Both would help to setup exclusions a lot easier.

Best Regards

Sebastian Hennebrueder

Excellent suggestions. If you create a couple of YouTrack feature requests (http://youtrack.jetbrains.net) for them, I'd certainly vote for them.
