TerminationPoints and NodeConnectors

Vincent Jahjah <vincent_jahjah@...>

Hello, ODLers,

What is the current way of accessing TerminationPoints, or NodeConnectors?

I have seen that NodeConnectors are used quite extensively, for instance in the l2switch project. That said, they are deprecated, and TerminationPoints are recommended instead.

If I use the more recent Topology-based Node class, they have the method "getTerminationPoint()" instead of "getNodeConnector()". The issue is that these more recent classes are not augmentable to FlowCapableNode.

Additionally, I am not sure if I can count on MD-SAL storing information on the right kind of Node object, since I am using l2Switch.

What should I do? Do I really have to ignore the deprecation warnings?
