Analyzing dependencies

In IDEA 6.0, when running Analyze Cyclic Dependencies (or Package Dependencies), is there a way to limit the analysis depth? What I mean is this, if I have package A with 3 subpackages A.a, A.b, A.c and package X with 3 subpackages X.a, X.b, X.c, I care if A and X are cyclic but I don't really care if X.a and X.c are cyclic because they're part of a common organizational structure. So, can I limit my analysis to just the top level package (or any arbitrary depth)? Similarly, can I exclude certain package trees from the analysis?

If not in 6.0, does 7.0 provide greater control?

thx

Hello Andy,

You cannot limit package levels but you can analyze your custom scope with
excluded low level packages.

Thank you
