Hi Syed,

I've been comparing NSX 4.2 and NSX-T 1.0 and the main differences I could
find are:

   - API url base, which change from /ws.v1/ to /api/v1/, API methods also
   different, see attached Documentations
   - There's a substantial difference in logical routers, NSX-T makes
   difference between TIER-0 and TIER-1 logical routers allowing their
   creation, but that's not possible in NSX 4.2, there's a unified logical
   router option.
   - The same happens on NAT, TIER-0 and TIER-1 depending on the type of
   router in NSX-T
   - Controller cluster on NSX 4.2 had role types and usually API was
   exposed by them, not by NSX Manager. On NSX-T API is exposed by NSX
   Management Nodes

In my opinion it would be suitable to create a new plugin, but would like
to bring it into discussion. I also attach API documentation for NSX 4.2
and it newest version NSX-T 1.0 for you to compare them.
