Using Micrometer to trace your Spring Data JPA application
In a previous article, we saw the goodness of stirring a little Micrometer into our Spring Boot 3 application to trace what our application did. We saw how to activate the Micrometer bindings buried deep in Spring Boot for web calls. And we piped all those good metrics into Zipkin, the open source distributed tracing system thanks to Docker.
But that wasn’t very “realistic” cuz we didn’t have a “real” database underneath it.
Everyone know that real apps have data, right? So why not put something together!
