I want to integrate a server side web server with a blockchain as a distributed database. What patterns are available to do so?
After several days of research on the above components, I have finally been able to make it work. I want to share my researches so others can benefit and contribute. I profit of this message to thanks you all for the posts that has helped me understand the pieces.
My design was to have a server (Meteor) to server (Geth) communication and not a browser to geth communication as I consider Geth should be in the DMZ of the company and the application is intranet type so inside the company network.
The initialisation of the web3 component To be noted here that I still have a problem where the ethereum:web3 library does not recognize correctly the XMLHttpRequest and XHR2 libs and therefore had to tweek the ethereum_web3.js. Advise on how to fix this are welcome.
I can comment further upon questions.
Good luck for all who are experimenting.
