Does a product exist that helps you update Java/.Net/etc? Like something more than renovate or dependabot?

Something more than dependabot, as dependabot does Java/.Net already? If so, I can't think of any tools, but it reminds me of Scala Steward & Scalafix - that could potentially find deps that need updating, and apply migration patterns, and then PR. Is it that kind of thing you're after?

Yeah I haven't seen anyone try this. Other than Scala and Michael Bryzek at Flow

@Alan Barr what “more” are you looking for?

Just wondering if someone else has thought about it or learned that it's not worth their time at all.

About what? To update what exactly? Do you mean to auto-refactor based on deprecated or new Java APIs?

Yeah maybe kinda hazy for me. We have a combination of helm, semver, gitlabci, nuget, and Dockerfile that we need someone to confirm that's upgraded. Kinda mess.

We extended renovate to also support docker, amongst others to indeed use it for the full spectrum
