    Hi @bhaisaab,
    This is a new Pull Request in order to fix the conflicts we found in the old pull request
#19 .
    Travis-CI is 100% green and this PR has been extensively tested.
    I will put the most update version of the description here:
    Pull request of changes in the "cloud-server" module
    In the last 14 weeks we have worked in the cloud-server, focusing our time in the refactor
of the 
    [Vpc]VirtualNetworkApplianceManagerImpl. We had a mains goals increase of Maintainability,
Extensibility, Readability and test coverage. That was just a first step towards the development,
still in progress, of the Redundant Virtual Routers for VPC.
    == What has been done so far:
    • The VirtualNetworkApplianceManagerImpl class line numbers dropped from 4440 to 2558
    • The VpcVirtualNetworkApplianceImpl class line numbers dropped from 1484 to 749
    • We created 35 new classes in order to split the code/responsibility
    • We added 97.8% unit test coverage for and
    o The most complex classes we changed are in those packages
    o About 1700 lines of unit tests
    • We executed many Marvin tests that we got from ACS and made compliant with our domain:
    o test_01_create_account
    o test_01_add_vm_to_subdomain
    o test_DeleteDomain
    o test_forceDeleteDomain
    o test_updateAdminDetails
    o test_updateDomainAdminDetails
    o test_updateUserDetails
    o test_LoginApiDomain
    o test_LoginApiUuidResponse
    o test_privategw_acl
    o test_01_reset_vm_on_reboot
    o test_03_restart_network_cleanup
    o test_05_router_basic
    o test_06_router_advanced
    o test_07_stop_router
    o test_08_start_router
    o test_09_reboot_router
    o test_01_create_service_offering
    o test_02_edit_service_offering
    o test_03_delete_service_offering
    o test_01_start_stop_router_after_addition_of_one_guest_network
    o test_02_reboot_router_after_addition_of_one_guest_network
    o test_04_chg_srv_off_router_after_addition_of_one_guest_network
    o test_05_destroy_router_after_addition_of_one_guest_network
    o test_01_stop_start_router_after_creating_vpc
    o test_02_reboot_router_after_creating_vpc
    o test_04_change_service_offerring_vpc
    o test_05_destroy_router_after_creating_vpc
    o test_vpc_remote_access_vpn
    o test_vpc_site2site_vpn
    We started the changes in the network area, trying to identify the differences in the
2 types of network we have. For that we created Basic and Advanced Network Topology classes.
The network topology classes are responsible by invoking the Apply/Setup/Create/Save rules
that were previously done by the [Vpc]VirtualNetworkAppliance. A topology instance is retrieved
via a context object that is injected in the [Vpc]VirtualElement. The context object will
return the most appropriate topology instance based on the Network Type, which is defined
in the Data Centre. That was the first step towards the refactor.
    From the topology class we reach the Rule Applier implementation that will be used to
do all the rule setup preparation (i.e. invoke DAOs and prepare the command object). The RuleApplier
interface was extracted from the VirtualNetworkApplianceManagerImpl, where it use to be an
inner interface. For each anonymous implementation of the RuleApplier we created a concrete
class. The rules are used as elements of a Visitor class, which will perform some extra logic,
depending on the rule it's visiting, and call the send commands to router method. The latter
has also been extracted from the VirtualNetworkApplianceManagerImpl and is now in a new helper
class: NetworkHelperImpl.
    The visitor has been used because we were aiming to split the responsibility and also
because the way the RuleApplier was implemented before, it was clear that every command sent
to the router was following a 2-steps approach: gather information to create the commands,
apply some logic to send to the router. For those reason we implemented the visitor pattern.
Since we already had the Basic/Advanced Network Topology classes, we created 2 concrete classes
to visit the rules: Basic/Advanced Network Visitors. Both classes extend the abstract class
NetworkTopologyVisitor, which defines all the visit methods per type of rule. By doing so,
we can use the same rule and separate the logic based on the type of visitor that we have
- Basic or Advanced.
    Continuing on the refactor, we also added some helper classes for the "getSomething" related
methods. Following this approach we ended up having the following classes:
    • NetworkHelper (interface)
    • NetworkHelperImpl
    • VpcNetworkHelperImpl
    • CommandSetupHelper
    • NicProfileHelper
    • RouterControlHelper
    Last, but not least - and actually the most crucial part of the code - there was also
a huge refactor in terms of how the routers are deployed. The previous deployeRouter and deployVpcInrouter
methods do not exist any more. Instead of having the logics spread, or sometime tangled, in
the [Vpc]VirtualNetworkApplianceManagerImpl, we have created a Router Deployment Definition
mechanism, with classes that follow the same naming convention. The deployment definition
has 2 implementations, Router and Vpc router, which are created with the aid of a Builder
class. Most of the work, which is common to both implementation, is being done by the RouterDeploymentDefinition
class. The specific bits are done by their implementation. for example, when findOrDeployVirtualrouter()
method is called, it will make sure that precondition are checked, deployment plan is done
and generated and executed. The implementation will vary according to the Deployment Definition
instance we have: Router or VpcR
    Although it looks like a huge change in the ACS cloud-server core, we kept most of the
original code. Ou mains focus in this first step was to restructure it and make it better
to understand. We have excessively tested our tested via Unit Tests, integration tests and
also manually in order to have the 100% confidence to push the code towards the upstream branch.
    Please, if you have doubts/suggestions/change requests, do not hesitate to contact us.
Also feel free to improve the code we change in any aspect you think it's necessary, but do
not forget to share with the community your reasons for doing so.
    The Redundant VPC subject has been discussed in a few threads in the last months:
