This session will cover the features of the Oracle Blockchain Platform (OBP) based on Hyperledger Fabric including the enhancements Oracle has made to Fabric.
OBP is a managed Blockchain as a Service offering from Oracle that makes is extremely easy to set up, configure, and manage a Fabric network.
As a fully managed service Oracle takes care of patching, upgrading, ensuring availability, etc. leaving the user to focus on blockchain and not what it takes to get a production ready blockchain network up and running.
As well as a development tool called App Builder, it allows developers to quickly create, debug, and deploy smart contracts based upon a specification file that defines the smart contracts assets, including support for tokens. It’s a bit like the deprecated Composer project and includes both a CLI and VScode extension.
