Removing a file and all dependencies

I installed a file "eclipse" like this:

sudo yum install eclipse.

It installed perfectly. When it installed it also install about 6 dependent files.

Now I want to remove this file and all of its dependencies. Is there a single command to do it?

Must I remove each file individually? Is that the only way to do this?

Any help appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
