(EN) inspectIT Ocelot: Dynamic OpenTelemetry Instrumentation at Runtime

If you want to trace or extract specific data from a Java application with OpenTelemetry, you usually have to modify the application’s code. However, this is often not possible, especially with bought-in software. We would like to show, how the open source inspectIT Ocelot Java agent can be used to dynamically inject OpenTelemetry code at runtime for extracting specific application and business data – and all this without having to adapt the application itself.
