I know that Dynatrace monitors incoming web requests per agent/application. My questions is, if it is possible to monitor outgoing web requests fired from the particular application towards another one (sometimes not instrumented with Dynatrace). And if so, then how? Most of our applications run on Java. Thanks

This works out of the box aswell. AppMon monitors all outgoing request, weather they are to an instrumented or uninstrumented host.
If the requests are not shown you should upgrade to the latest fixpack as @Janne O. suggested below.

I'm actually struggling with that currently.
In 6.3 it was working perfectly. Web Request were monitoring both incoming and outgoing requests and I could chart both.
I've upgraded to 7.1 and although I can see the outgoing endpoints in the pure paths all the outgoing web request measures are not recording any data and my outgoing web request dashboard have lost all data since the upgrade.

We are really struggling here with that. As outgoing requests, we do not see :-( Don't you know where might be some missconfiguration or what might be missing? I have two applications, one is using rest interface to communicate with the other one. I created a web request time measure and select there only my agent/application. Yet the measure does not gather any data :-( If I filter it in the web requests dashlet, I can see them, but only on the side of the receiving application.
