-----------------------------------

             Summary: fgcp: return actual IP address instead of dummy  when creating new address
                 Key: DTACLOUD-361
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DTACLOUD-361
             Project: DeltaCloud
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Server
            Reporter: Dies Koper
            Priority: Minor


There is a difference between Deltacloud and FGCP API regarding public IP address allocation:
In Deltacloud you allocate an IP address, it is returned immediately, and then you assign
it to an instance.
In FGCP, you allocate an IP address, nothing is returned immediately - you have to wait and
poll the list of IP addresses until you notice a new one has been added and hope no one else
allocated another one in the meantime as you won't know which was yours - then you need to
enable the IP address, which is also an asynchronous operation, and then you can assign it
to an instance.

In the current Deltacloud implementation, you allocate an IP address and need to poll the
list to find it. When you try to assign it to an instance the first time, you'll get an error
back. It will however enable the IP address so if you retry the operation a minute later it
will properly assign the IP address to a machine.

Should try to bring the fgcp api into the fold.
