      Description

      To illustrate this issue, I created a sample project here: https://github.com/johnlinp/misc-demo/tree/master/maven-dependency-analyze-dnsjava

      The dependency tree is like this:

      My app ---> ApacheJMeter_http ---> dnsjava
      

      I didn't use any code directly from the artifact dnsjava in my app. I only used ApacheJMeter_http. However, the command mvn dependency:analyze will report a used undeclared dependency: dnsjava.

      [INFO] --- maven-dependency-plugin:3.1.1:analyze (default-cli) @ maven-dependency-analyze-dnsjava ---
      [WARNING] Used undeclared dependencies found:
      [WARNING]    dnsjava:dnsjava:jar:2.1.9:runtime 

      It seems that the problem came from the line:

      map.put("update", null);
      

      If I change it into map.put("create", null); or even map.put("UPDATE", null);, the problem will disappear. Therefore, I think there might be something to do with the string "update".

      Note that this issue is not reproducible in maven-dependency-plugin:2.8.
