I am in the process of getting started with opendaylight project. I am trying to get latest stable code base to download. How to do I point to a specific version/build of source code.

If you're looking to develop code, you'll want to pull the latest via git. The wiki describes how to do this quite clearly.

If you just want the latest build, you can download it via the Integration team's Jenkins jobs. This would be the quickest way to run the controller, poke at it and such.

If you want the most stable code possible, you'll want to grab our most recent release (Hydrogen).

As a part of some other work I'm doing for ODL, I've built a pretty sweet script that can get you the latest stable build (via integration team job), confirm you have the required dependencies, and start ODL. Download this script, then run it with ./ -i to install ODL, or ./ -io to install ODL and start it. See ./ -h for additional options.

Thanks your answer. The wiki provides instruction for latest code which may have some issues. Similar to stable hydrogen release is there a way to get stable code-base which compiles and runs.

Sorry for the delay, I've been out of the country. There are only two types of stable: 1) Passes build and associated tests; 2) An actual release. The integration build I mentioned is option one, the Hydrogen release is option two. I think you're asking for option one.

Also note that ODL just isn't super stable at the moment. It's a very new project and is under furious active development. Unless you're doing dev work, you'll likely be happiest with Hydrogen.

the link in the answer says to download and build some projects.We have to download and build those or are there more?

Hi, I am not sure if this thread is still active or not. I am working on Opendaylight Hydrogen version still and I need to work on the source code. I downloaded the stable version of it bit while compiling many of its modules do not compile . Is there any link or version which compile and works fine?

Hi @sujata_roy , Use git hub for getting source code .


git clone

git checkout stable/lithium (checkout the required version)

If you need hydrogen source code, checkout stable/hydrogen. You may need to set Proxy settings.

After download , build it using mvn clean install command!

Thank you for the reply. I did the same . I cloned git and used the following steps. git clone cd controller git checkout stable/hydrogen mvn clean install Many of its module still do not compile like md-sal, conf-manager and many more.
