To further simplify problem resolution, dynaTrace Diagnostics directly integrates with Eclipse through its CodeLink plug-in. Once dynaTrace Diagnostics has identified a certain source code fragment as the root cause of a particular problem, developers can directly jump from the dynaTrace Diagnostics Client to the exact location within their Eclipse development environment where they need to apply the necessary changes. This saves the time and hassle required to switch between dynaTrace and Eclipse then locating the right classes and methods within the source code by replacing it with a single click.

This completes the installation and configuration of dynaTrace Diagnostics CodeLink.

Communication with Diagnostics Client

The dynaTrace Diagnostics CodeLink IDE Integration works for Java and .NET source code and supports single or multiple instances of Microsoft Visual Studio or Eclipse. Java source code is automatically opened within Eclipse (if available) and .NET source code within Microsoft Visual Studio. If several instances of Microsoft Visual Studio are available, following dialog appears within the Diagnostics Client.

If only one instance of Eclipse or Microsoft Visual Studio is available, the Eclipse or Microsoft Visual Studio (depending on the source code) is automatically opened.
If several matches have been found within different projects, choose the project you want to jump into.

Choose the right Microsoft Visual Studio instance and jump directly into the Microsoft Visual Studio. Eclipse works the same way.
In case the application fails to install or does not function properly feel free to contact support at http://support.dynatrace.com
