Step 2: Test connectivity to the ledger - Amazon Quantum Ledger Database (Amazon QLDB)

Step 2: Test connectivity to the ledger

In this step, you verify that you can connect to the vehicle-registration ledger in Amazon QLDB using the transactional data API endpoint.

To test connectivity to the ledger
  1. Use the following program (ConnectToLedger.ts) to create a data session connection to the vehicle-registration ledger.

    Note

    To run data transactions on your ledger, you must create a QLDB driver object to connect to a specified ledger. This is a different client object than the qldbClient object that you used in the previous step to create the ledger. That previous client is only used to run the management API operations listed in the Amazon QLDB API reference.

  2. To run the transpiled program, enter the following command.

    node dist/ConnectToLedger.js

To create tables in the vehicle-registration ledger, proceed to Step 3: Create tables, indexes, and sample data.
