Ant Dependency Viewer - plugin detail
The Ant Dependency Viewer plugin visualizes the NetBeans projects Ant Tasks and their dependencies.
The Ant Task Dependency Viewer Plugin enables you to visualize dependencies of targets of an Ant build script. The Visual Library is used, to visualize the dependencies. If the plugin is added to the NetBeans IDE, the projects context menu provides the command "View Ant Dependencies", that generates the graphical representation of the dependencies of the Ant build script. By the use of the context menu of a target in a graphical representation a new representation can be created. This representation either contains all dependencies for this target or all targets that are depend on this target. Furthermore in an ant targets context menu, there is an action provided, that allows you to jump to the targets location in the build script.
Furthermore, the navigator window of the NetBeans IDE provides a satellite view of the graphical representation. The properties window advertises the important target attributes and the task list of the selected target. A target can be selected by a double click. The colors of the nodes and edges of the graph can be customized via the NetBeans options window (Tools – Options - Miscellaneous).

Nice and working :-)
But Ant buildfiles generated by Netbeans are a nightmare!
