Testing of OF-1.3

Greetings,
there is a testing issue coming up regarding OF-1.3. The plugin and library both need a switch capable of OF-1.3 to develop and test new implementations.

I have successfully tried to update openvirtualswitch driver in the latest (2.0.0) mininet image. Default version of the openvirtualswitch driver is 1.4.3 and the latest released version is 1.10. So now the protocol version can be specified using startup parameters of mn-script.

From openvirtualswitch FAQ:
Open vSwitch 1.10 and later have experimental support for OpenFlow 1.2 and 1.3.
--------------------------

I believe that this can be used for start, but there is definitely a need for a testing network
or site later, where switches with full support of OF-1.3 specification would be available.


Do you have an idea how or where can we (later on) develop and test the OF-1.3 implementations?

Thank you.

Regards,
Michal Rehak

Just to add, Following file has track of what all is still need to be done to fully support 1.3 in OVS.


I came across another options (of soft switch ) 


Looks like it has comprehensive support for 1.3, but i didn't get an opportunity to explore it in detail.

Michal, can you please share the repo details from where we can download your modified mininet image ?

Thanks
Anil
