Distributed Tracing with Micronaut


In this complimentary webinar, Zachary Klein demonstrates how to build tracing-aware apps with the Micronaut Framework using the standard OpenTracing API.


Distributed tracing allows developers to better monitor and understand the flow of requests through a microservice architecture with a much more holistic view than is possible through other approaches, such as log-file aggregation or metrics-gathering.

Micronaut makes it easy to build tracing-aware apps using the standard OpenTracing API and includes special support for Jaeger and Zipkin.

In this webinar, Micronaut team member, Zachary Klein, demonstrates how Micronaut abstracts the details of adding tracing to interservice requests and shows you how to quickly set up a robust tracing scheme for your own Micronaut-based federation.

Intended Audience

This webinar is a great learning opportunity for JVM developers interesting in learning to leverage Micronaut's wide range of capabilities, as well as those interested in distributed tracing in general.


The following topics are covered in this webinar:

  • Introduction to Distributed Tracing
  • Introduction to Micronaut
  • Micronaut's Tracing Annotations
  • Demo Application Using Jaeger


Although everyone is welcome, we recommend attendees have at least a working familiarity with Java or Groovy. Experience with Micronaut is a plus, but the framework features utilized are explained in the webinar.
