Query on ExperimenterMessage

Petralia, GiuseppeX <giuseppex.petralia@...>

Hi all,


I was using the ExperimenterMessage model generated from the yang model openflow-protocol.yang and I noticed that it is missing the data field.


For example if you look at echo-request you will find the data leaf:


grouping echo-request {

       reference "OFPT_ECHO_REQUEST message in Openflow Switch 1.3 Spec";

       /* Symmetric message */

       uses ofHeader;


       leaf data {

                    type binary;




While if you look at the Experimenter fields, data is missing and consequently the generated source does not implement the getData() method (that is the method to which I am interested in):


grouping experimenter-core {

    description "General experimenter message content suitable for symmetric and multipart message";

    leaf experimenter {

                type oft:experimenter-id;


    leaf exp_type {

                type uint32;


    choice experimenter-data-of-choice {

                // to be augmented by vendors




Is that any reason for that or is it just a bug?


Thank you for your help.
