XRP Ledger java API and text interface

Recommended Posts

This post is to announce project to develop Java API  for apps to interact with XRP Ledger. There will also be a simple text based user interface.

Project Outcomes:

  • Java API to communicate with Rippled server using public API methods.
  • Admin API methods(after public methods are done).
  • Methods to add/remove xrp addresses that you want to track.
  • methods to save some data(not sure yet what data makes sense to store)
  • text based user interface.

 

All code will be published on https://github.com/Hiirihii/xrpl-java-api under MIT license. And project website you can found in https://incox.io/

I have entrepreneur background and i have little by little get into coding more or less because i'm looking to understand XRP Ledger better. For the past 4 months i have done online java courses that my local university offers. And if all goes as well i will start my Computer Science studies next September.

Main idea behind this project is to apply what i have learned in online courses in practice and build tools what i need. Like reason to build text interface instead of GUI is that i don't know how to build GUI..yet:lol: But i also have some weird interest for terminal applications. 

Currently i have no strict timeline but i'm looking to push first piece of code to github in May or June.

I'm surprised that Ripple hadn't done something Java-focused a long time ago, considering Java's enterprise importance.

The only public blockchain project that I know of that's Java-centric is Hedera Hashgraph, which is very much targeting enterprise environments.

There is java version of ripple-lib but seems that it has been undeveloped for quit some time.  Mayby  they have  allocated resources to some where else.

There is one yes, but it's been moved under "rippled-unmaintained" and it hasn't been committed to for years.  I've been thinking of starting one, including a Spring module and a Spring boot starter, but never got to it.  Judging from Ripple careers page they write a lot of java, so it's a curious thing why Ripple is not maintaining an open source library.

Thats a big project! If I was you I'd start by forking the unmaintened library from Ripple and going through each method instead of starting from scratch. 

Also itd be nice to optimize the library for android applications. That would be a major contribution.

Best of luck to you!

I think it make sense to utilize what ever i can from ripple-lib-java. Thanks i was already drop it from my mind but i will definitely go it through with thought.

No problem. I do java development on the side- looking forward to dropping in on your project as it progresses.
