New proposal Kafka Producer plugin

Andrew McLachlan (amclachl) <amclachl@...>

This afternoon I have added a proposal for a Kafka Producer plugin for OpenDaylight

The current state of the project is that we have functional code with all the features detailed via the wiki. Currently it’s based off Lithium but naturally we would support this code into upcoming releases.

The history of the project is that we built this in support of some OpenDaylight demo/research work in one of our labs. Subsequent to the interest we have experienced we have refined the plugin and would like to release a working codebase to the community in support of OpenDaylight, and are ready to do so pretty much immediately if the submission is approved.

Kindest regards
