MicroProfile OpenTracing

The MicroProfile OpenTracing specification provides a mechanism to access an opentracing.io Tracer.

MicroProfile Open Tracing is stabilized. Although you do not need to change any of your existing applications and scripts that use a stabilized feature or feature capability, consider using the MicroProfile Telemetry feature instead.

For information about migrating from MicroProfile Open Tracing to MicroProfile Open Telemetry, see Differences between MicroProfile Telemetry 1.0 and MicroProfile OpenTracing 3.0.
