If your app is written in Java, you can get started quickly with Lightstep. Download the Java SpecialAgent, then configure it to communicate with your Lightstep Microsatellites. When you deploy your app, all supported third-party framework libraries (like the Elasticsearch client, RxJava, or the Kafka client) will begin sending trace data to Lightstep.
Configure your tracer to communicate with the Lightstep Microsatellites and create a single span on your Java service. You install both the OpenTracing API and Lightstep tracer and then use the OpenTracing and Lightstep APIs to instrument your code.
Learn how to instrument your application using OpenTelemetry and then send data to Lightstep.
