Can we reverse engineer invocation statements in Java code to "call dependency relations" in PlantUML class model?

I already used PlantUML Dependency to generate PlantUML class model from Java code. It is really a great and efficient tool. I am looking for the following feature that is not currently supported in PlantUML Dependency: reverse engineer usage call dependency relations from method invocation statements in Java code as in the following example:

Class A{

public void m1(){

  B obj = new B();



Class B{



I need the PlantUML class model generated from these Java classes to have the following call dependency relation:   A --------> B because a method m1() in class A CALLS any method from class B (i.e., the implementation of A.m1() uses an object of type B, so I need A----> B in the PlantUML model). Is there any existing reverse engineering tool that supports this feature? how/would it be possible please to add this feature to PlantUML Dependency relations? I need to use this feature in my research work.

Thank you,
