When to choose opentracer vs agent-api?



I am an AppDynamics beginner. I have a question regarding when to choose vs


I have below end goals,

1) Trace the transaction across multiple web services (nice to have log correlation, like in Spring cloud Sleuth)

2) Using AppDynamics user interface able to enter a transaction correlationId (or a unique identifier) and debug through the request end-to-end across multiple web services, and async processes (Kafka, Redis queues, web sockets, etc.). 

3) Trace the transaction across Java and Node.js applications based ecosystem. 


Please also point me to any practical production examples which would point me in the right direction. Thanks.
