5 Extending the MPLS L3 VPN Technology Pack

You can extend the MPLS L3 VPN Technology Pack to meet the business needs of your organization. This chapter describes the content included in the technology pack to facilitate extension.

See UIM Concepts, UIM Developer's Guide and the Oracle Communications Design Studio online Help for general information about how you extend specifications, characteristics, and rulesets.

Important:

To ensure that your extensions are upgradeable and supportable, you must follow the guidelines and policies described in UIM Concepts.

Extending Validation and Auto-Assignment Capabilities

The MPLS L3 VPN Technology Pack includes a number of stub rulesets that you can use to introduce new validation and auto-assignment capabilities.

Stub rulesets are blank by default. You can develop your own rulesets in separate cartridges and give them the same name as the stub. After you deploy the technology pack into Oracle Communications Unified Inventory Management (UIM), you deploy the cartridges with your custom rulesets, which replace the stub versions. See UIM Concepts and UIM Developer's Guide for more information.

These are the stub rulesets included in the technology pack:

Extending Configuration Specifications with Stub Configuration Items

Stub configuration items have no content associated with them by default. You use them to add characteristics or specification options to configurations. You can associate characteristics or specification options to these stubs from separate cartridges, so you do not need to unseal a technology pack cartridge to extend it. See UIM Concepts and the Design Studio online Help for more information.

Extending the MPLS L3 VPN Termination Model

The MPLS L3 VPN Termination Configuration specification includes one stub configuration item. Table 5-1 lists and describes this configuration item.
