fabric tendermint cross demo

This is an example application for an atomic swap through Cross-chain transaction using Cross Framework between Hyperledger Fabric and Tendermint.

As Atomic commit protocol, Simple commit protocol is used.

How tools work

  • Relayer
    • relaying packets between different chains
  • Fabric tools
    • genesis block generation
    • configuration of a channel
    • cryptographic generation
    • deployment of chaincode
  • Fabric CLI
    • creating tx, submitting tx, querying tx on Fabric node
  • Tendermint CLI
    • creating tx, submitting tx, querying tx on Tendermint node

Startup fabric and tendermint network

# prepare fabric network and tendermint network using docker containers
make -C demo network

Testing the demo

# initialize relayer, fabric CLI, tendermint CLI, and run handshake for IBC between fabric and tendermint by creating transactions.
make -C demo run-init
# run ./scripts/scenario/sample-scenario. See the `About sample-scenario` section for more detail.
make -C demo run

End network

# down related containers, remove volumes
make -C demo network-down
# remove any generated data
make -C demo clean

Restart network if needed

make -C demo network-down
make -C demo clean
make -C demo network
