Instrument Java applications

Custom code—the logic that most directly impacts your business—is often the most interesting code to observe.

Below, you can find a couple of different ways to instrument your application: an automatic option, with more ready to go out of the box; and a more direct, customizable option. Either will help you capture data on how your code behaves in production and offer some interesting queries to explore.

The Beeline uses the SDK underneath the hood, but using the SDK directly will offer total control over which fields to capture and how they’re sent to Honeycomb.
