Spring Dependencies Diagram?

I have a project with modules that have Spring facets and corresponding Spring filesets, and I'd like to see the Spring dependencies diagram.

The IDEA Help has a 'Spring Dependencies Diagram' entry that gives a path to the diagram as:

Project tool window | Project view | Spring config | Jump to Source | Dependencies tab




However, in the Project View of my Project tool window, I don't see any 'Spring config' node, option, or context menu entry.

Can someone explain in simple steps how I can view the Spring Dependencies diagram ?

Hi Dave,

Ah, I see - our Spring config files are nested 7 directories down in our resource tree, and they're not called spring-config.xml because there are several of them... but now I know what I'm supposed to be looking for, I've got the diagram I wanted. Thanks!

Can I suggest that the Help page for the Spring Dependencies Diagram be changed to something appropriately generic, such as: "In the Project View, select and open the relevant Spring configuration file for editing, and then select the 'Dependencies' tab below the configuration editor."

Hi Dave,

Sounds reasonable. I created corresponding ticket - IDEA-55334.

OK - thanks Sergey, that's very useful. That description should be in the Help as well...
