JSON RPC API

Pchain JSON RPC API

JSON is a lightweight data-interchange format. It can represent numbers, strings, ordered sequences of values, and collections of name/value pairs. JSON RPC is a stateless, light-weight remote procedure call (RPC) protocol. Primarily this specification defines several data structures and the rules around their processing. It is transport agnostic in that the concepts can be used within the same process, over sockets, over HTTP, or in many various message passing environments. It uses JSON (RFC 4627) as data format.

JavaScript API

To talk to a pchain node from inside a JavaScript application, use the pweb3 library, which gives a convenient interface for the RPC methods. See the JavaScript API for more.

Java API

To talk to a pchain node from inside a Java application use the pweb3j library.

How To Open RPC

You can start pchain with flag –rpc
1
pchain --rpc
Copied!
After this, if you want to check the main chain’s current block number, the command will look like this:
1
curl -X POST --data '{"jsonrpc":"2.0","method":"eth_blockNumber","params":[],"id":1}' localhost:6969/pchain
Copied!
Or if you want to check the subchain’s current block number, the command will look like this:
1
curl -X POST --data '{"jsonrpc":"2.0","method":"eth_blockNumber","params":[],"id":1}' localhost:6969/child_0
Copied!
You can also send requests by Postman, you will need to start pchain with the flag “–rpc –rpcaddr=0.0.0.0”. Be aware, opening your RPC to remote hosts is very dangerous if you keep your account information on your node.

eth_getStorageAt

Returns the value from a storage position at a given address.
Parameters
  1. 1.
    DATA, 20 Bytes - address of the storage.

    QUANTITY - integer of the position in the storage.
  3. 3.
    QUANTITY|TAG - integer block number, or the string "latest", "earliest" or "pending", see the default block parameter
Returns
DATA - the value at this storage position.
Example
Calculating the correct position depends on the storage to retrieve. Consider the following contract deployed at 0x295a70b2de5e3953354a6a8344e616ed314d7251 by address 0x391694e7e0b0cce554cb130d723a9d27458f9298.
1
contract Storage {
2
uint pos0;
3
mapping(address => uint) pos1;
4
5
function Storage() {
6
pos0 = 1234;
7
pos1[msg.sender] = 5678;
8
}
9
}
Copied!
Retrieving the value of pos0 is straight forward:
1
curl -X POST --data '{"jsonrpc":"2.0", "method": "eth_getStorageAt", "params": ["0x295a70b2de5e3953354a6a8344e616ed314d7251", "0x0", "latest"], "id": 1}' localhost:8545

3
{"jsonrpc":"2.0","id":1,"result":"0x00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000004d2"}
Copied!
Retrieving an element of the map is harder. The position of an element in the map is calculated with:
1
keccack(LeftPad32(key, 0), LeftPad32(map position, 0))
Copied!
This means to retrieve the storage on pos1["0x391694e7e0b0cce554cb130d723a9d27458f9298"] we need to calculate the position with:
1
keccak(decodeHex("000000000000000000000000391694e7e0b0cce554cb130d723a9d27458f9298" + "0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001"))
Copied!
The geth console which comes with the web3 library can be used to make the calculation:
1
> var key = "000000000000000000000000391694e7e0b0cce554cb130d723a9d27458f9298" + "0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001"

"0x6661e9d6d8b923d5bbaab1b96e1dd51ff6ea2a93520fdc9eb75d059238b8c5e9"
Copied!
Now to fetch the storage:
1
curl -X POST --data '{"jsonrpc":"2.0", "method": "eth_getStorageAt", "params": ["0x295a70b2de5e3953354a6a8344e616ed314d7251", "0x6661e9d6d8b923d5bbaab1b96e1dd51ff6ea2a93520fdc9eb75d059238b8c5e9", "latest"], "id": 1}' localhost:8545

eth_sign

The sign method calculates an pchain specific signature with: sign(keccak256("\x19Ethereum Signed Message:\n" + len(message) + message))).
By adding a prefix to the message makes the calculated signature recognisable as an pchain specific signature. This prevents misuse where a malicious DApp can sign arbitrary data (e.g. transaction) and use the signature to impersonate the victim.
Note the address to sign with must be unlocked.
Parameters
account, message
  1. 1.
    DATA, 20 Bytes - address.
  2. 2.
    DATA, N Bytes - message to sign.
Returns
DATA: Signature
Example

eth_call

Executes a new message call immediately without creating a transaction on the block chain.
Parameters
  1. 1.
    Object - The transaction call object
  • from: DATA, 20 Bytes - (optional) The address the transaction is sent from.
  • to: DATA, 20 Bytes - The address the transaction is directed to.
  • gas: QUANTITY - (optional) Integer of the gas provided for the transaction execution. eth_call consumes zero gas, but this parameter may be needed by some executions.
  • gasPrice: QUANTITY - (optional) Integer of the gasPrice used for each paid gas
  • value: QUANTITY - (optional) Integer of the value sent with this transaction
  • data: DATA - (optional) Hash of the method signature and encoded parameters. For details see Pchain Contract ABI
  1. 1.
    QUANTITY|TAG - integer block number, or the string "latest", "earliest" or "pending", see the default block parameter
Returns
DATA - the return value of executed contract.

eth_estimateGas

Generates and returns an estimate of how much gas is necessary to allow the transaction to complete. The transaction will not be added to the blockchain. Note that the estimate may be significantly more than the amount of gas actually used by the transaction, for a variety of reasons including EVM mechanics and node performance.
Parameters
See eth_call parameters, expect that all properties are optional. If no gas limit is specified geth uses the block gas limit from the pending block as an upper bound. As a result the returned estimate might not be enough to executed the call/transaction when the amount of gas is higher than the pending block gas limit.
Returns
QUANTITY - the amount of gas used.
