Java Distributed Tracing implementation compatible with Zipkin.
Zipkin is based on Dapper.
dapper (dutch) = brave (english)... so that's where the name comes from.
More information on Distributed Tracing and OpenZipkin here: https://openzipkin.github.io
You can use brave if you use the JVM and:
- You can't use Finagle.
- You don't want to add Scala as a dependency to your Java project.
- You want out of the box integration support for RESTEasy, Jersey, Apache HttpClient.
Brave is compatible with OpenZipkin backends such as zipkin-server
