Monitoring Java applications with Elastic: Multiservice traces and correlated logs

In this two-part blog post, we’ll use Elastic Observability to monitor a sample Java application. In the first blog post, we started by looking at how Elastic Observability monitors Java applications. We built and instrumented a sample Java Spring application composed of a data-access microservice supported by a MySQL backend. In this part, we’ll use Java ECS logging and APM log correlation to link transactions with their logs.


Java Logging: Best Practices for Success with your Java Application

Java is used by at least 7.6 Million developers worldwide. Java logging has been a staple of the Java platform since day one, boasting extensive, resourceful documentation and rich API’s. The cornerstone of monitoring your application is efficient and widespread logging. At Coralogix, we know that logs have become one of the most important components of a modern monitoring function.


Monitoring Java applications with Elastic: Getting started with the Elastic APM Java Agent

The goal of Java application monitoring is to minimize the time it takes to discover a problem with a Java application (mean time to detect, or MTTD) and the time it takes to recover from it (mean time to resolve, or MTTR). Understanding what's going on in our code is the biggest step in finding and eliminating the root cause of a problem, and let's face it — that code that seemed clear and concise when we wrote it a year ago might not be as "self documenting" as we thought.

Logging Java Apps with ELK and

Java is a well-established object-oriented programming language that epitomizes cross-platform software development and helped to popularize the “write once, run anywhere” (WORA) concept. Java runs on billions of devices worldwide and powers a huge range of important software, such as the popular Android operating system and Elasticsearch. In this tutorial, we will go over how to manage Java logs with the ELK Stack and


Java Exception Handling: A Tutorial on How to Catch Errors and Improve Performance

Error handling is often a significant part of the application code. You might use conditionals to handle cases where you expect a certain state and want to avoid erroneous execution – for example, division by zero. However, there are cases where conditions are not known or are well hidden because of third party code. In other cases, code is designed to create an exception and throw it up the stack to allow for the graceful handling of an error at a higher level.


Java Development Mistakes: Avoid These 7 Mistakes When Java Developing

Over time, Java has become a popular programming language in software development. Although Java is more popular with developers than C or C++, this programming language still has its problems. Here are seven Java development mistakes that developers can make and how you can avoid them.


End-to-End Java Observability in 5 Simple Steps

Java is one of the most popular, flexible and useful programming languages with a very vibrant community to support it. Many of our customers use Java to create amazing applications, it’s an application on a single VM, or based on microservices running on Kubernetes. Naturally, we made it simple to understand the performance of Java-based applications using SignalFx Microservices APM.
