Develope Module

This docs is Java version

Nuls-module-java-template combined with NULS-ChainBox can help you quickly build blockchain business modules implemented in Java. Two core packages of nuls-core-rpc and nuls-base under io.nuls.v2 are imported in the template. The former implements the basic communication protocol with the module, and the latter includes the basic data structure and utility class of the block.

Using templates

Download this template using the tools script in the NULS-ChainBox project.

Tool-t Java demo  # demo is a custom module name

When the download is complete, tools will automatically replace the module names defined in pom.xml and module.ncf with demo. Import the project in the way of importing Maven projects using common Java development tools.

Implementation ideas of business modules

  1. Define the transaction type and invoke the TransactionTools.registerTx method to complete the transaction registration upon module starting (MyModule.startModule).
  2. Implement the entry point of transaction creation, assemble the transaction, and store the business data in txData. Invoke the TransactionTools.registerTx.newTx method to create the transaction in the transaction module.
  3. Implement the TxProcessorImpl.validate method to complete the verification code of transaction business.
  4. Implement the TxProcessorImpl.commit method to complete the data storage code of transaction business.
  5. Implement the TxProcessorImpl.rollback method to complete the data rollback code of transaction business.
  6. Implement the application scenario code of business data.

Building module program

The package script will help you build the code, and the package fulfills the requirements of the NULS-ChainBox integrating modules to the NULS2.0 runtime environment. The packaged jar file, startup script, stop script, and Module.ncf will be built into the outer folder.
