Anicetus Core is an implementation of the Anicetus Framework in Java. The framework leverages Spring wherever possible to improve the flexibility of Anicetus but the use of Spring is only required for JMS publication. The Java implementation follows the design outlined by the general framework very closely.


The Anicetus Java implementation is based on the concept of an execution context that has a meaning relative to some unit of work. A simple example is a servlet request, the context being relative to a doGet or doPost method. A context has a clear life cycle of when it begins and when it ends. A telemetry session begins when the context begins and ends when the context ends. The session is published when the context ends.

The context also provides factories for creating other telemetry artifacts as children of the session. The factories manage the concept of nested transactions, states, and events, allowing multiple levels of nesting. These factories make it convenient to properly establish the hierarchy of telemetry that occurs within any application.

Ideally the context is created using Spring as it provides the necessary life cycle operations for a variety of application types. The telemetry context is fully integrated with Spring and responds to Spring life cycle events to manage the session life cycle. The Anicetus framework is fully integrated with Spring to simplify the management of all components.
