Submit a transaction

The execute() method submits a transaction to a Hedera network. This method will create the transaction ID from the client operator account ID, sign with the client operator private key, and pick a node from the defined network on the client to submit the transaction to. The transaction is also automatically signed with the client operator account private key. You do not need to manually sign transactions if this key is the required key on any given transaction. Once you submit the transaction, the response will include the following:

  • The transaction ID of the transaction

  • The node ID of the node the transaction was submitted to

  • The transaction hash

Transaction Signing Requirements

  • Please refer to the specific transaction type and defined key structure of the account, topic, token, file or smart contract to understand the signing requirements

Java
//Create the transaction
AccountCreateTransaction transaction = new AccountCreateTransaction()
        .setKey(newPublicKey)
        .setInitialBalance(new Hbar(1000));

//Sign with client operator private key and submit the transaction to a Hedera network
TransactionResponse txResponse = transaction.execute(client);

//Get the transaction ID
TransactionId transactionId = txResponse.transactionId;

//Get the account ID of the node that processed the transaction
AccountId nodeId = txResponse.nodeId;

//Get the transaction hash
byte [] transactionHash = txResponse.transactionHash;

System.out.println("The transaction ID is " +transactionId);
System.out.println("The transaction hash is " +transactionHash);
System.out.println("The node ID is " +nodeId);
