Actually, I have asked you the wrong question... I'm sorry...
I know about OpenDaylight
and I'd like to set up a basic network topology with exabgp
I'm doing like a PoC with OpenDaylight and exabgp
I have 2 hosts in different networks
that I'd like to establish a connection using BGP

If you look in the qa folder there is plenty of example of configuration
the qa/self connects exabgp to itself
the qa/conf has lots of self-check

Hello guys. Im looking for a CLI for control and monitor announcements to a ExaBGP. I saw Erco, but in my scenario i think the deploy will get complicated ( And i dont need web interface), since I run ExaBGP within a network namespace. So there is a command line way to control ExaBGP?
(Or a process config way that allow me to write and read API commands at least)

Another question i have is about groups in config. How can I abstractly can think it? It provides a isolation level - like juniper - or is just for organization? And also, can I control from where to where a route must to go? API can also control to where group or neigh send a specific update/withdraw?

You can look at the TCP example comming with the code - it is ancient and has not been reviewed for some time.
But overall it is using the API like erco
in 3.4 there is a ‘group’ concept on master there is a 'template’ (which will change)
look at the qa/conf folder for examples
