what exactly is a business transaction

New Poster

I am connecting a java agent to the saas controller. Looking at the business transactions tab, I see a lot of entries. Some with the '.do'  at the end (which I've found  to be 'servlet' and others with '.execute' (-servlet) or 'jsp' (-servlet).


Now, I'm coming from a .NET background. 


Can I refer to all these entries as 'Business transactions'?


I was going to run a test by performing an action on the web application and seeing the resulting action. But, it does not reflect instantly on the controller, so hard to trace.

Hi @Tina.Alsop,


Please refer to our AppD Docs page about Business Transaction:


You will notice on the left-hand side of the page other nested pages that are related to Business Transactions. 


Please let me know if you are able to find the information there you are looking for.
