Any suggestion for me on how to compile and understand each project of ODL (like genius , netvirt) separately ?

I am a beginner trying to understand and work on ODL. I would like to focus on a specific project or feature of ODL separately. To be specific I am interested in DHCP and IP tunneling implementation of ODL (The latest project i.e, genius doesn't support Ipv6 tunneling). Any suggestions would be of great help. Thanks in advance.

You should edit your question to also include your motivation for working on ODL. The answer depends on that. Are you interested in OpenStack/ODL/OVS integration? BGP? LISP? Just exploring out of curiosity? Etc.?

Try contacting the genius project via their mailing list, genius-dev and ask if you could help with IPv6 tunneling implementation. They can give you specific pointers on how to get started. It may also be useful to check ODL Bugzilla for bugs related to you topics of interest -- it's usually easier to start with fixing a bug, then a completely new implementation.
