Scenario 3 – Distributions are unnecessarily large

Program distributions require more resources than actually needed.

Root cause:

  • A lot of code or whole libraries are not used by application at all
  • Java does not have explicit provided/required API definitions thus unused code cannot be easily discovered
  • Developers tend to rather create code than clean up old parts
  • It is not easy to predict which library can be deleted since dependencies are unknown
