Dependabot Java

Dependabot for Java

Dependabot creates pull requests to keep your Java dependencies up-to-date.


Java is one of Dependabot's newest languages. We're still rapidly improving it, but alongside Dependabot's core features it already has:

Support for custom repositories

Dependabot can handle custom repository sources, as well as The Central Repository. If you have a private repository you need support for let us know.

Full details of multi-dependency updates

If updating a property affects multiple dependencies then Dependabot will include details of all of the updates in the pull request it creates.

Flexible monorepo support

Using a monorepo? No problem - you can specify one or many directories within a repo for Dependabot to look for dependency files in.

Custom branches and labels

By default, Dependabot will create PRs against your default branch and label them with "dependencies". Want to use a different branch or label? No problem.
