Developers are realizing the benefits of using Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) options, such as VMware’s own CloudFoundry.com, where they have choice of programming language, middleware options, and can start developing in seconds, without having to set up complicated infrastructure. While VMware runs the underlying infrastructure of CloudFoundry.com, application teams are still squarely on the hook to run and scale their applications.
Spring Insight answers the question “what just happened with my code?” and let’s developers see how code is behaving in development, stress test, or other environments for any Java application installed within their CloudFoundry.com account.
What does it mean when developers add Spring Insight to their CloudFoundry.com account? It means developers have instant access for code-level monitoring on any Java application install in their Cloud Foundry Account. Developers can use it to see what services run for a page request, find slow execution, drill into causes, and verify transaction are working as designed. Any code change in CloudFoundry.com can be analyzed to see:
- JDBC/SQL queries and database transactions
- Spring bean interaction
- Calls to external services
- HTTP headers in a REST application
- Slow-loading pages, stack traces, and more
