So i want to make a module that adds, modifies or removes flows from the controller and therefore from the switches in an asynchronous way. I'm thinking about using the MD-SAL API that can make use of FlowProgrammerNorthbound accessible via REST API in order to do that.

Do i need to create a module incorporated in the controller or it can be an exterior module/program that sends REST requests to the controller and his able to install, modify or remove flows ?

Thanks in advance. Nuno
