Overview of this book

Blockchain and Hyperledger technologies are hot topics today. Hyperledger Fabric and Hyperledger Composer are open source projects that help organizations create private, permissioned blockchain networks. These find application in finance, banking, supply chain, and IoT among several other sectors. This book will be an easy reference to explore and build blockchain networks using Hyperledger technologies. The book starts by outlining the evolution of blockchain, including an overview of relevant blockchain technologies. You will learn how to configure Hyperledger Fabric and become familiar with its architectural components. Using these components, you will learn to build private blockchain networks, along with the applications that connect to them. Starting from principles first, you’ll learn to design and launch a network, implement smart contracts in chaincode and much more. By the end of this book, you will be able to build and deploy your own decentralized applications, handling the key pain points encountered in the blockchain life cycle.

Integration with existing systems and processes

When discussing end-to-end solutions with customers, we often explain that blockchain-related components represent a very small percentage of the overall footprint. This is still a very important set of components, but nonetheless they represent a small footprint.

This section will focus on the touch point between our traditional systems and the Hyperledger Fabric and Composer API.

We will explore the various patterns of integration we have leveraged and see how some of the non-functional requirements can influence the integration deployment. Finally, we will explore some additional considerations that integrators will need to keep in mind when designing their integration layer.

In short, in this section, you will:

  • Understand the design consideration of the integration layer
  • Review the integration design patterns
  • Explore the impact of non-functional requirements on the integration

Design considerations

By now, you have experience with Fabric SDK and...
