Create MultiChain from a java component

+1 vote

I am looking to work on a project where I primarily work in Java. I want to know tho is there way I can start up a multichain node using java?

I would like to have a nice frontend thats user friendly and allow the user to set their params for the node and click create and then the node is created.

Is this possible to do via Java?

I see theres solutions to communicate with a multichain node via rpc. At the moment I am not looking into that, I just want to see if it can be created. Once I know that if it can/can't I will then look into communicating with it.

I don't know of any such framework, but you just need to find a way to run command line commands from Java, and you should be all set. The multichain-util command allows parameters to be changed from their defaults, and multichaind has a -shortoutput runtime parameter that you will probably find helpful.
