I am new to opendaylight, and I am hoping that I can use it in my dissertation. I am trying to find a point in enhancing very large scale Data-center Networks. would ODL be a good tool for enhancing such networks?
My second question, is that I tried to start using ODL, But I am confused, because I found two different deployment methods..
The first method is to download the package from opendaylight.org ,(I downloaded lithium), unzipped and run. the controller works fine, but I could not find any .pom files to run mvn clean install command in case i needed to make my own project for my dissertation!!!
the second method is to use git and download the "integration" project folder, this case I find the .pom files
I am little confused about the different between these two methods, and I would appreciate any material to explaining the structure and how to start, I am thinking of proposing/enhancing a protocol/algorithm to be used..
thanks for help
