Can two chaincode interact with each other?

+2 votes
I have two applications that use two different chaincodes. Now for one function to work, I need one chaincode to interact with another chaincode.. I have done this in Ethereum but now I am using Hyperledger and want to implement this.. Is this possible? If yes, then how?

Yes, it is possible for two chaincodes to interact with each other.. You can use the following API of ChaincodeStubInterface to do it:


// InvokeChaincode locally calls the specified chaincode `Invoke` using the
// same transaction context; that is, chaincode calling chaincode doesn't
// create a new transaction message.
// If the called chaincode is on the same channel, it simply adds the called
// chaincode read set and write set to the calling transaction.
// If the called chaincode is on a different channel,
// only the Response is returned to the calling chaincode; any PutState calls
// from the called chaincode will not have any effect on the ledger; that is,
// the called chaincode on a different channel will not have its read set
// and write set applied to the transaction. Only the calling chaincode's
// read set and write set will be applied to the transaction. Effectively
// the called chaincode on a different channel is a `Query`, which does not
// participate in state validation checks in subsequent commit phase.
// If `channel` is empty, the caller's channel is assumed.
InvokeChaincode(chaincodeName string, args [][]byte, channel string) pb.Response

You can use it like this:

response := stub.InvokeChaincode(chaincodeName, chainCodeArgs, channelName)

Yes, two chaincodes can interact with each other. To do this, one chaincode has to invoke the other chaincode. Here's a sample code that shows how to do it:

func (stub *TestAPIStub) InvokeChaincode(chaincode1 string, args [][]byte, channel string) pb.Response {
   return pb.Response{}
