I know that AllJoyn Thin Client API support only Ethernet. I read the text which the Wi-fi is not supported because of UDP stack problem.

I want to know the exact UDP stack problem. Please explain the reason for me. and, Can I modify the source code so that AllJoyn Thin Client can communicate with Wi-fi? If I can, where can I modify the code and can you give me some tips?

Thanks a lot :)

AllJoyn Thin Library supports Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and Serial communciation. However the Library is just a Library and it requires a platform implementation to function on various types of hardware. For example on Linux with the AllJoyn Thin Library you can communicate over Ethernet and WiFi. On the Arduino Due specifically, there is an issue with the existing Wi-Fi shields in the market having a lack of proper UDP support. Please see our guide for Arduino AllJoyn Thin Library development. There is a note in section 3 of the document:

Note UDP support is available on a development branch of the Arduino libraries, but it is not supported in the current Arduino release

You are welcome to work on supporting the Arduino Due with a Wi-Fi shield and the current software once the Arduino library is fixed will work without changes.
