If you pull the code from master branch recently, i guess it would be latest helium code.

Back to your question, Hydrogen ODL controller has both MDSAL as well as ADSAL.

ODL Helium and Lithium use Karaf to allow you to "roll your own OpenDaylight". You can load the AD-SAL or MD-SAL via Karaf.

Note that just before the holiday, the TSC started a discussion about deprecating the AD-SAL, as no one really owns or maintains it at the moment (most projects have moved to MD-SAL).

19:54:47 <colindixon> #topic supporting the AD-SAL
19:55:07 <colindixon> #info rgowrishankar points out that we’re having lots of problems with supporting the AD-SAL in Helium
19:55:17 <colindixon> #info this seems to be causing a lot of confusion among ODL users
19:55:36 <dfarrell07> +1 to user confusion (as a major contributor to ask.odl)
19:56:39 <colindixon> #info the question is (i) can we deprecate the AD-SAL and compatibility layer, (ii) if not who will maintain it, (iii) how do we convey the level of support (or lack thereof) to users
19:57:32 <kwatsen> does the mix of AD-SAL and MD-SAL conflict with the singularity policy?
19:58:08 <colindixon> kwatsen: not until the project is core, and it’s the same project
19:58:21 <colindixon> which means I have no idea how singularity would apply
19:58:32 <colindixon> #info colindixon asks edwarnicke if the AD-SAL is going to be deprecated in Lithium
19:59:18 <colindixon> #info edwarnicke responds saying nobody is maintaining the AD-SAL and hasn’t been for a while, he fixed bugs at the end of Helium, but doesn’t want to keep doing things
19:59:28 <colindixon> #info edwarnicke says personally he would like to deprecate
19:59:34 <rovarga> unless someone steps up by ... M2 I guess, we need to move to deprecate it, I think
20:00:03 <phrobb> As per our process we would deprecate in Lithium, and remove the APIs in Beryllium, correct?
20:00:17 <dfarrell07> colindixon: I have a #action for that if you want
20:00:17 <dlenrow> Do we have a formal deprication process? I'm pretty sure it's not "ask Ed"
20:00:30 <colindixon> dlenrow: we do, it’s up to the project
20:00:37 <colindixon> deprecated in one release and can be removed in the next
20:00:39 <rovarga> dlenrow: the deprecation process is up to the project's committers
20:00:55 <dlenrow> That seems insane for dependents in community
20:01:09 <rovarga> dlenrow: in this particular case it seems the currently-active committers are not willing to maintain the feature going forward
20:01:10 <dlenrow> unilateral deprication evil wherever you put it
20:01:11 <dfarrell07> #action rgowrishankar, edwarnicke will reach out to people using AD-SAL. They should either come up with a way to maintain it or move to MD-SAL.
