Let's smash some bugs! Five error tracking tools for Java

Compare Takipi, Stack Hunter, Raygun, Sentry, and Airbrake in a common Java debugging scenario

Alex Zhitnitsky at Takipi blog has put together a list of five popular error tracking tools and tested their performance in a common debugging routine. The comparison is designed to see how each tool integrates with Java and differentiate its stand-out features.

Rapid deployment in distributed computing environments puts new pressure on error tracking and debugging, which has led to a new class of tools:
