Proactive restoration of data plane using OpenFlow's fast failover groups

Hi

I need to implement proactive restoration in my data plane, essentially enabling the switches to recover from a data plane failure without involving the controller. The way to do this seems to be to install backup paths using OpenFlow's fast failover feature, to allow the switch to use a different set of rules when a port fails.

Is there a module in ODL that programs backup paths into the switches at all, or will I need to write my own application?
