Test Results

When launching JUnit tests with the Dynatrace launcher, the plug-in will automatically register a test run to the Dynatrace Server. The results and key architectural metrics are automatically retrieved and displayed in the Test Result tab.

The test results are also visible in the Dynatrace Client for further drill-down to the PurePath level.

Source Code Lookup

The Dynatrace Client enables you to analyze PurePaths down to the individual methods that have been instrumented in the context of the captured transaction. When you identify a problematic method either in the PurePath view or in the Methods view of the Dynatrace Client, you can use the Source Code Lookup to jump to the source code line if you have the Eclipse project open.
