I want to manage switches running on some proprietary protocol along with other Open-flow supported switches using OpenDaylight. Basically, I want to add the support for the proprietary protocol to the southbound APIs of ODL.

How should I approach this problem? Any related reference?

First see your proprietory protocol is connection oriented or connection less protocol?

Opendaylight controller already have very well implemented two protocols (I consider those as well implemented examples).

Connection Oriented: Have a look at Netconf Connector tutorials. If you want to look for much complex packet based then good tutorial would be Openflow plugin implementation.

Connection Less: Then you can have any much simple plugin.

ODL Southbound Plugin Development would be good point to start with.

Thanks for the reply!
I am using is a layer-2 connectionless management protocol. I am new to OpenDaylight development. Could you please provide some reference to start off with the plugin development?

The goal that I am trying to achieve is to develop a single controller for managing our proprietary protocol supported switches and standard Openflow supported switches.
