MNG-1412 gets released, it will be nice to have the dependency analyzer respect ordering, too.
As some motivation, consider a project P with the following dependency tree:
Further assume that both dependencies a and B contain the same class X (for whatever reason, say backward-compat). Project P directly uses this class X (hence Dep A being a dependency of P).
Currenlty, the ordering of artifacts is ignored by the analyzer such that the artifactClassMap might list Dep B before Dep A. This in turn will make findArtifactForClassName() return Dep B as the source artifact for class X which results in the bogus warning "Used undeclared dependency Dep B" because Dep A should have been considered instead as it is first on the class path.
