Application model and architecture

The process of writing a Fabric application begins with chaincode, but ultimately the developer must make judicious decisions about how an end user or a software agent must interface with that chaincode. How the assets of the chaincode, and the operations of the blockchain network running that chaincode, ought to be exposed to the user is a question that ought to be dealt with carefully.
