Lab setup: OpenDayLight (Aluminium) with mininet

I am setting up SDN lab using Open Daylight (Aluminum) and mininet.

  1. Installed features-openflowplugin in ODL.
  2. Started mininet (default topology: 1 switch with 2 hosts)

sudo mn --controller=remote,ip=

Ping is failing.

mininet> pingall
*** Ping: testing ping reachability
h1 -> X
h2 -> X
*** Results: 100% dropped (0/2 received)

ODL didn't populate any flows in OVS switch s1.

$ sudo ovs-ofctl -O OpenFlow13 dump-flows s1
 cookie=0xa, duration=1297.951s, table=0, n_packets=29, n_bytes=1958, send_flow_rem priority=0 actions=CONTROLLER:65535

In ODL (Aluminum), I don't see l2switch plugin. What is the way to make ODL to auto-populate the flow rules so that hosts (h1 & h2) can communicate with eachother?
