Instrumenting outgoing HTTP calls - Amazon X-Ray
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China.

Instrumenting outgoing HTTP calls

The user factory class shows how the application uses the X-Ray SDK for Java's version of HTTPClientBuilder to instrument outgoing HTTP calls.

Example src/main/java/scorekeep/UserFactory.java – HTTPClient instrumentation

import com.amazonaws.xray.proxies.apache.http.HttpClientBuilder; public String randomName() throws IOException { CloseableHttpClient httpclient = HttpClientBuilder.create().build(); HttpGet httpGet = new HttpGet("http://uinames.com/api/"); CloseableHttpResponse response = httpclient.execute(httpGet); try { HttpEntity entity = response.getEntity(); InputStream inputStream = entity.getContent(); ObjectMapper mapper = new ObjectMapper(); Map<String, String> jsonMap = mapper.readValue(inputStream, Map.class); String name = jsonMap.get("name"); EntityUtils.consume(entity); return name; } finally { response.close(); } }

If you currently use org.apache.http.impl.client.HttpClientBuilder, you can simply swap out the import statement for that class with one for com.amazonaws.xray.proxies.apache.http.HttpClientBuilder.
