What changed in lighty.io 14?

lighty.io 14 maintains compatibility with the OpenDaylight Silicon release.

lighty.io RNC

The RESTCONF-NETCONF Controller Application (lighty.io RNC) is part of this release, go check out the in-depth post on this wonderful application!

We added a Helm chart to lighty.io RNC, for an easily configurable Kubernetes deployment.

Features & Improvements

Corrected usage of the open-source JDK 11 in three examples:

We have migrated from testing & deploying using Travis CI to GitHub Actions! This switch makes for easier integration of forked repositories with GitHub Actions & SonarCloud, while uploading & storing build artifacts in GitHub was also made possible – yay!

As for GitHub Workflow, we added Helm & Docker publishing, as well as the ability to specify checkout references in the workflow itself.

lighty.io Examples received smoke tests (also called confidence or sanity testing), which will point out severe and simple failures. JSON sample configurations also received updates.

We understood, that time tracking logs were hard to read – so we made them more readable!

We took all the necessary functionality from lighty-codecs artifact, and replaced it with the introduction of lighty-codecs-util.

You can spot an updated README file for the Controller, while we added initial configuration data functionality to it as well.
