In this liveProject, you’ll instrument tracing inside a single microservice. You’ll use Spring Boot to first construct your microservice, and then use the OpenTracing API and Jaeger client library to generate traces and send data to the backend Jaeger server. What we create in this project will form a foundation for later projects in the series.
This liveProject is for experienced Java developers who are also confident users of Docker. To begin this liveProject, you will need to be familiar with:
- Intermediate Java
- Intermediate Spring Boot
- Intermediate Docker
- Basics of Jaeger
