The Keyhole Labs team has announced the release of an open source tool for Hyperledger Fabric blockchain networks: KHS Blockchain Browser.

The KHS Blockchain Browser allows users to browse blockchain data while providing real-time analytics of the transactions and executions. It also provides monitoring of new blocks being added to the network.

The application was built using React and Node.js. It is Apache 2.0 open-source licensed.

Hello Micronaut

Rik Scarborough Java, Microservices, Testing Leave a Comment

From some of my previous posts, you can get the idea that I promote the idea of developing maintainable code rapidly. So I was pretty excited when I learned that the same group that was responsible for Grails was working on a similar project for Web Services. Hello, Micronaut.

In this post, I provide an introduction to the Micronaut framework and its features to provide a foundation for you to try it out yourself.

Case Study Published – Blockchain In Hyperledger: Better Than ETL?

Keyhole Software Blockchain, Java Leave a Comment

In general terms, a blockchain is an immutable transaction ledger in a distributed network of participating peers. Its data includes a string of transaction records secured with cryptography. Benefits of blockchain can include decentralization, immutability, provenance, and finality.

While Bitcoin and Ethereum cryptocurrencies brought blockchain to the forefront of technology headlines, the technology underneath has true potential value for the enterprise outside of the cryptocurrency space. The features provided by blockchain technology can lead business benefits like lower costs, higher efficiency, and lower risk. Seeing a technology actually applied reinforces understanding. It can also be a genesis for new ideas.

In this case study, we walk through a Hyperledger Fabric reference blockchain with a focus on showing the potential value for enterprise-level organizations.

The potential cost savings of blockchain is one of the benefits not really discussed as a whole. However, we at Keyhole believe it could be a significant feature benefit. The goal of this case study is to help reinforce this…

Unit Testing Your Architecture With ArchUnit

Cindy Turpin Architecture, Technology Snapshot, Testing Leave a Comment

I am a Spring/Java developer (primarily) and an advocate of unit testing.

There is often a debate over what constitutes a unit test, an integration test, a system test, etc. But, most of us agree that tests keep you from going “off the rails” once a project becomes sufficiently complex.

However, I have found very few discussions on architectural tests. What keeps us from deviating wildly unintentionally from our original, planned architecture? And, after all, how many enterprise projects even keep the same architects from the beginning of the initiative to shelving and replacement?

In this blog, I introduce ArchUnit, a Java architecture test library for specifying and asserting architecture rules in plain Java. We’ll discuss how it works to mitigate architectural risks in developing quality enterprise applications…
