For API methods calls, we first create a "framework" that will establish a connection to the node running on the local machine. The C++ code is shown below. In the future we will simply change the call code between the comments  /** api code begin */ and /** api code end */

#include <thrift\stdcxx.h>

#include <thrift\transport\TSocket.h>

#include <thrift\transport\TBufferTransports.h>

#include <thrift\protocol\TBinaryProtocol.h>


#include <APIHandler.h>


using namespace apache::thrift::transport;

using namespace apache::thrift::protocol;

using namespace api;


int main()


         std::shared_ptr<TSocket> socket = std::shared_ptr<TSocket>(new TSocket("", 9090));

         std::shared_ptr<TTransport> transport = std::shared_ptr<TTransport>(new TBufferedTransport(socket));

         std::shared_ptr<TProtocol> protocol = std::shared_ptr<TProtocol>(new TBinaryProtocol(transport));

         std::shared_ptr<APIClient> api = std::shared_ptr<APIClient>(new APIClient(protocol));






         catch (...)


                  printf("thrift error: failed connect to node\n");



         if (transport->isOpen())


                  /** api code begin */


                  // do something


                  /** api code end */






         return 0;
