The Fabric application stack has five layers:
- Prerequisite software: the base layer needed to run the software, for example, Docker.
- Fabric and Fabric samples: the Fabric executables to run a Fabric network along with sample code.
- Contract APIs: to develop smart contracts executed on a Fabric Network.
- Application SDKs: to develop your blockchain application.
- The Application: your blockchain application will utilize the Application SDKs to call smart contracts running on a Fabric network.
