I am a new to Ethereum and Blockchain, I have been trying execution of Contracts using Metamask and Remix using Chrome browser for sometime.

I am trying to deploy the same contract from Java using Web3j.

But when I try to execute my contract I am getting the following error Intrinsic gas too low

Exception in thread "main" java.util.concurrent.ExecutionException: java.lang.RuntimeException: Error processing transaction request: Intrinsic gas too low
    at java.util.concurrent.CompletableFuture.reportGet(Unknown Source)
    at java.util.concurrent.CompletableFuture.get(Unknown Source)
    at com.solartis.bc.Sample.main(Sample.java:44)
Caused by: java.lang.RuntimeException: Error processing transaction request: Intrinsic gas too low
    at org.web3j.tx.ManagedTransaction.send(ManagedTransaction.java:43)
    at org.web3j.tx.Contract.lambda$deployAsync$24(Contract.java:288)...

I have read in few other questions to increase the "Gas" value but no matter how much higher value I give, I still get the same error.

Has anyone else faced the same issue, I am not sure what I am doing wrong. Attached more details below

ContractRunner.java

package com.solartis.bc;

public class ContractRunner {

    public static void main(String args[]) throws InterruptedException, ExecutionException, IOException, CipherException, TransactionTimeoutException {
        Web3j web3 = Web3j.build(new HttpService("http://xxxxxxx.westus.cloudapp.azure.com:8545/"));  // defaults to http://localhost:8545/
        Web3ClientVersion web3ClientVersion = web3.web3ClientVersion().sendAsync().get();
        String clientVersion = web3ClientVersion.getWeb3ClientVersion();
        System.out.println(clientVersion);
        Credentials credentials = WalletUtils.loadCredentials("Mxxxxxxxxe", "C:\\Users\\adheep_m\\AppData\\Roaming\\Ethereum\\keystore\\UTC--2017-07-07T13-52-18.006069200Z--3b0d3fa08f0e0b3da8fe1f8ac0e05861bfdada25");
        System.out.println(credentials.getAddress());

        BigInteger GAS = new BigInteger("30000000");
        BigInteger GAS_PRICE = new BigInteger("20");
        BigInteger ETH = new BigInteger("1");
        //LeisureTravelPolicyHolder contract = LeisureTravelPolicyHolder.deploy(web3,credentials,GAS,GAS_PRICE,ETH,test,test,test,test,test,test,test,test,test).get();

        Token con = Token.deploy(web3,credentials,GAS,GAS_PRICE,ETH).get();
        System.out.println(con.getContractAddress());
    }
}

Token.sol

pragma solidity ^0.4.0;

contract Token {
 mapping (address => uint) public balances;

 function Token() {
     balances[msg.sender] = 1000000;
 }

 function transfer(address _to, uint _amount) {
     if (balances[msg.sender] < _amount) {
         throw;
     }

     balances[msg.sender] -= _amount;
     balances[_to] += _amount;
 }
}

I figured out what was wrong. My GAS_PRICE and GAS_LIMIT values were not proper. I later figured out that Web3j has default GAS_PRICE and GAS_LIMIT, see updated code below

        BigInteger GAS = Contract.GAS_LIMIT;
        BigInteger GAS_PRICE = Contract.GAS_PRICE;

Contract.GAS_LIMIT and Contract.GAS_PRICE are deprecated. Hence, use the below constants from org.web3j.tx.gas.DefaultGasProvider instead:

DefaultGasProvider.GAS_PRICE; DefaultGasProvider.GAS_LIMIT;

  • Glad you got it sorted. Please come back after 48 hours and accept your own answer :-) (There's an imposed time limit... ) – Richard Horrocks Jul 10 '17 at 17:48
