Getting started is simple

  1. Add the Sentry Java SDK to your dependencies:

    <dependency>
        <groupId>com.getsentry.raven</groupId>
        <artifactId>raven</artifactId>
        <version>7.8.2</version>
    </dependency>
  2. Configure your logging framework of choice:

    log4j.rootLogger=INFO, Console, Sentry
    log4j.appender.Console=org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppender
    log4j.appender.Sentry=com.getsentry.raven.log4j.SentryAppender
    log4j.appender.Sentry.dsn=your dsn
    log4j.appender.Sentry.threshold=WARN

That's it! Check out the Sentry for Java documentation for more information.

View actual code in stack traces


See the error’s url, parameters, and session information


Filter noisy traces with app, framework, and raw error views

Go back in time


Reproduce bugs without user feedback using each error's history of events and user interactions

Don't blindly guess


Sentry provides relevant information tags about your software, environment, and users that might have contributed to errors.

You can also submit optional custom data to help provide extra context or information that is unique to your business.

  • “What was the value of the shopping cart?”
  • “How many widgets were visible?”
  • “Was their game running in 32 bit or 64 bit mode?”
  • “Which clients’ users are experiencing this bug?”
  • “Did the waxing gibbous cause the problem?”

Sentry also supports your frontend

Understand the big picture


Use issue graphs to understand the frequency, scope, and impact of errors and prioritize what needs to be fixed.

Get notified via email, SMS, or chat when catastrophic bugs make it to production or regressions happen.

Watch errors in real-time as you deploy so you can roll back when the unexpected happens.
