Floodlight

Floodlight is a Java-based OpenFlow controller.

Floodlight is released under an Apache 2.0 license, which enables the software to be included in commercial packages. It is currently available on OpenFlowHub, a community of OpenFlow developers leading or contributing to open source OpenFlow projects. Floodlight is built on work that began at Stanford University and UC at Berkeley and now continues among a community of open source developers along with engineers at software-defined networking (SDN)  and network virtualization startup Big Switch Networks Inc.
