How to write l3-Plugin?

Hi All,

I have gone through lot of docs about quantum plugin and did not get clear idea about the plugin. I want to extend routing functionality by adding virtual router to openstack. What is the best way to do this?

I am confused between l2 and l3 plugin. Also want to understand what l3-agent and plugin-agent does.

If the plugin(that I need to write) just implements l3 functionlity, then who is going to provide l2 functionlity? Would there be other plugin that will do the l2 job like OpenViewSwitch? If yes, is there way to run/configure two plugins simultaneously. If no, then do I need to implement all the l2 and l3 functionality in my plugin and how can I implement it?

Please guide me!

Thanks in advance, Sachin.
