Before you enable your Java application with BugSplat technology, you may want to take a moment to examine the crash reports created with our sample applications.
To do this, login to BugSplat with user name ‘email@example.com’ and password ‘Flintstone’.
All the crash reports in the firstname.lastname@example.org account are actual crashes created with one of our sample applications. Crash reports from the application MyJavaCrasher are mixed in with crash reports from Windows applications.
To view just the Java application crashes you can filter on application name “MyJavaCrasher” on the Crashes page.
Testing the sample application ‘MyJavaCrasher’
Locate the MyJavaCrasher java source file from the zip that you just downloaded. Notice that there is a folder called “lib” which contains 4 libraries:

Build the MyJavaCrasher source file and launch it without making any changes. Optionally, you may choose to build MyJavaCrasherConsole,which is a console version of the sample (for server applications).
Many of the buttons on the dialog will cause a crash. When a crash occurs, fill out the requested information and select ‘Send’. You should see a corresponding report within a few seconds on the Crashes page.
Next, we will change the sample app so that crash reports are sent to your BugSplat account.

BugSplat.Init(“Fred”, “MyJavaCrasher”, “1.0″);
Make the following changes:
Next, launch MyJavaCrasher and select a crash button. Fill in the requested information in the crash dialog and select “Send Report”
