Java

The Sentry Java SDK can be used with Kotlin, Scala, and other JVM languages. Code examples are typically provided in both Java and Kotlin.

On this page, we get you up and running with Sentry's SDK, so that it will automatically report errors and exceptions in your application.

Don't already have an account and Sentry project established? Head over to sentry.io, then return to this page.

Install

Sentry captures data by using an SDK within your application’s runtime.

build.gradle
Copied
// Make sure mavenCentral is there.
repositories {
    mavenCentral()
}

// Add Sentry's SDK as a dependency.
dependencies {
    implementation 'io.sentry:sentry:5.2.3'
}

Configure

Configuration should happen as early as possible in your application's lifecycle.

Copied
import io.sentry.Sentry;

Sentry.init(options -> {
  options.setDsn("https://examplePublicKey@o0.ingest.sentry.io/0");
});

Verify

This snippet includes an intentional error, so you can test that everything is working as soon as you set it up:

Copied
import io.sentry.Sentry;

try {
  throw new Exception("This is a test.");
} catch (Exception e) {
  Sentry.captureException(e);
}

To view and resolve the recorded error, log into sentry.io and open your project. Clicking on the error's title will open a page where you can see detailed information and mark it as resolved.
