Troubleshooting Spring Boot applications with Sentry

Some months ago we wrote a quick guide on how to use Sentry with Spring Boot and Logback.

If you haven’t yet used Sentry in a Spring Boot application - nothing to worry about - you will find all the necessary steps below.

How to Surface Relevant Performance Data

Your applications most likely consist of multiple components. These components could be written in different languages, with each individually instrumented with Sentry’s SDK. The goal of our tracing solution is to make sure developers get a full picture of the data captured within their tech stack. Tracing allows you to follow a request from the frontend all the way to your backend application and back.
