A search from the snapshot of the maven central as of May 2014 finds
only no reference to com.sun.tracing except it finds one artifact
jsdt-compat (https://github.com/cmbntr/jsdt-compat) that redistributes
com.sun.tracing APIs and implementation classes for pre-JDK7 usage.
As there is no possible way to use JSDT without going through
com.sun.tracing API the lack of references in maven central could be
good enough indication of this functionality not being in use.
AFAIK, there is no other reliable way to figure out whether an API is in
active use or not :(
