Oracle Blockchain Quick Start Guide

By: Vivek Acharya, Anand Eswararao Yerrapati, Nimesh Prakash

Overview of this book

Hyperledger Fabric empowers enterprises to scale out in an unprecedented way, allowing organizations to build and manage blockchain business networks. This quick start guide systematically takes you through distributed ledger technology, blockchain, and Hyperledger Fabric while also helping you understand the significance of Blockchain-as-a-Service (BaaS). The book starts by explaining the blockchain and Hyperledger Fabric architectures. You'll then get to grips with the comprehensive five-step design strategy - explore, engage, experiment, experience, and in?uence. Next, you'll cover permissioned distributed autonomous organizations (pDAOs), along with the equation to quantify a blockchain solution for a given use case. As you progress, you'll learn how to model your blockchain business network by defining its assets, participants, transactions, and permissions with the help of examples. In the concluding chapters, you'll build on your knowledge as you explore Oracle Blockchain Platform (OBP) in depth and learn how to translate network topology on OBP. By the end of this book, you will be well-versed with OBP and have developed the skills required for infrastructure setup, access control, adding chaincode to a business network, and exposing chaincode to a DApp using REST configuration.

REST Interface for OBP

All the administration and configuration steps for setting up and managing your OBP network (as mentioned in previous sections) can also be performed using OBP's Administration REST services. These services are useful for scenarios where the following is required:

  • Reducing the manual mode of these activities
  • Implementing an automated way (such as the DevOps pipeline) for setting up and managing the OBP network
  • Representing OBP administration information in a customized way

These administration REST interfaces include services related to organizations, nodes, channels, and chaincode. Additionally, OBP also provides a bundle of OBP Statistics REST services.

The following is the list of OBP Administration REST services:

  • Organizations REST endpoints: Under organizations REST endpoints, the following are the list of services:
    • Get organization certificates...
