I am fairly new to the NFV+SDN. I have downloaded the OpenDayLight and OpenStack in one Fedora 20 VM. I have mininet network as underlying physical topology in a separate VM. I want to run services like VPN, L3 routing and NAT, Loadbalancing etc on OpenStack, but I don't have a very clear image on how to start. As far as I have understood I have to run these services on OpenStack nodes (through VM instances) and route the traffic through mininet topology with OpenDayLight as the controller in the middle.

My confusions are: 1) How to start writing the applications (Firewall, VPN, NAT, etc) on OpenStack? 2) Do I have to write a code for such services or is it command line configuration? 3) I came across Neutron API, Is that of any help?

I have looked at the other questions regarding writing "Hello World" on OpenStack but could not find anything. I shall be grateful to you for any information that could get me started on this project.

I would suggest you to start reading the documentation and understand the very basic pieces of Infrastructure as a Service like OpenStack. Neutron will help you do what you need. Use this site to find answers to specific problems.
