I need to write a driver for our friewall hardware to integrate it to our
Openstack environment. I checked the Neutron Development wiki page, FWaaS
wiki page, fwaas driver codes written at the Github. Since there is no
clear documentation about howto write a direwall driver for Neutron i need
some guidance. The firewall driver will have a REST API that can be used to
configure it so what i need now is how i will debug and develop neutron
while writing the driver. What is the suggested way? Which functions should
be implemented? I had seen the abstract functions like, create_friewall,
update_firewall, the question is what are the context of the parameters
coming there. So either i should debug one of them step by step like the
iptables driver or some clear definition i should have.

What is the right way to do it?
