Maven Central Dependency Graph

This is an updated version of the artifact at https://zenodo.org/record/1489120

The Maven dependency graph is an open dataset of Maven Central artifacts, their dependencies, as well as other relationships. Its main intent is to domesticate the wild within and around the Maven central ecosystem, in particular, and JVM-based libraries at large, making it more harnessable to both academics and industry. It is intended to answer high-level research questions concerning artifacts releases, evolution, and usage trends over time. It can also be used to assist researchers in selecting relevant datasets, among the mass of existing software artifact, for assessing particular empirical software engineering challenges. The complexity of these questions can range from simple pattern matching to advanced big data analysis and machine learning techniques.

The accompanying paper to this dataset is has been accepted for publication in the proceedings of the International Conference on Mining Software Repositories 2019 and has received the MSR 2019 Data Showcase Award. This paper is available for download on arXiv.
