LoxiGen is a tool that generates OpenFlow protocol libraries for a number of languages. It is composed of a frontend that parses wire protocol descriptions and a backend for each supported language (currently C, Python, and Java, with an auto-generated wireshark dissector in Lua on the way).
LoxiGen currently supports OpenFlow Versions 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3.1. Versions 1.0 and 1.3.1 are actively used in production. Support for versions 1.1 and 1.2 is considered experimental.
Loxigen is free and open source software. The Loxigen tool itself is licensed under the Eclipse Public License, version 1.0 (EPL), with an exception allowing for the distribution of the generated artifacts under terms of your choice (copyright notices must be retained, see the loxigen.py header for details.)
