I understand that Helium uses the MD-SAL based RESTCONF API (when not using odl-adsal-compatibility feature) and Hydrogen used the AD-SAL based REST API. I have written a Management application which calls all the AD-SAL REST APIs. So, will this AD-SAL REST API support be there always ? Currently, MD-SAL RESTCONF does not give as much info as the REST API. Is this going to be expanded, so that if AD-SAL is not going to be supported, I can get the same info from the RESTCONF APIs ?

Could you be more specific which information is not provided by RESTCONF API and open enhancement requests for it?

I'm basically using ALL the REST APIs from TopologyManager , SwitchManager, Statistics Manager, FlowProgrammer and ConnectionManager. Is the info I get and the config I can set available in the RESTCONF API as well ?

I have the same problem to solve. According to link , AD-SAL may be marked as deprecated in Lithium release, and no one is supporting it in a current release. So, use of MD-SAL is the proper way to make long-term project.
