lighty.io is a set of OpenDaylight components, adapted to run in a plain Java SE environment – without a Karaf dependency.
lighty.io’s source-code was stripped to only what’s needed. A small source-code means less bug occurence. We just made debugging easier.
Modularity: lighty.io provides one core module and several other modules, implementing Southbound & Northbound plugins.
Without Karaf: have removed Karaf dependency in lighty.io and managed to create a new product, which redefines Software-Defined Networking. lighty.io provides OpenDaylight services in runtime and your application code does not depend on Karaf in any way.
Plain Java: We have made lighty.io one of the most lightweight SDN controllers in the world. This makes not only lighty.io‘s but OpenDaylight’s components usable in the world of containers & micro-services.
We are a proud supporter of OpenDaylight and are one of the largest contributors to this project to-date.
