Obtaining the CorDapp Template
When writing a new CorDapp, you’ll generally want to start from one of the following standard templates:
The CorDapp templates provide the boilerplate for developing a new CorDapp. CorDapps can be written in either Java or Kotlin. Sample code is provided in both languages throughout this tutorial.
Note that there’s no need to download and install Corda itself. The required libraries are automatically downloaded from an online Maven repository and cached locally.
Downloading the template
Open a terminal window in the directory where you want to download the CorDapp template, and run the following command:
git clone https://github.com/corda/cordapp-template-kotlin.git ; cd cordapp-template-kotlin
git clone https://github.com/corda/cordapp-template-java.git ; cd cordapp-template-java
Opening the template in IntelliJ
Once the template is download, open it in IntelliJ by following the instructions here: Running a sample CorDapp.
For this tutorial, you will only be modifying the following files:
// 1. The state contracts/src/main/kotlin/com/template/states/TemplateState.kt // 2. The flow workflows/src/main/kotlin/com/template/flows/Flows.kt
// 1. The state contracts/src/main/java/com/template/states/TemplateState.java // 2. The flow workflows/src/main/java/com/template/flows/Initiator.java
Progress so far
You now have a template that you can build upon to define your IOU CorDapp. Let’s start by defining the
