You can only call that if it is being exposed as an API/Service. From the quick look at the code, doesn't look like it will let you use it.

If you edit any file in any ODL project, it will stay local to you till you push it into gerrit and others review approve and merge it.

Best would be to get in touch with l2switch developers at

send an email to the nic-dev list. I saw this mail from them yesterday and maybe it would be of use for you:
