Hi,
I was going through the AllJoyn Gateway Agent High-level Design and got confused when I read about the "Get Profile functionality of Profile Management" and the "Get Profile functionality of App Access".
1. The ProfileManagement.getProfile() returns information for an existing remote profile associated with a given Connector App whereas
2. The AppAccess.getProfile() returns information for an existing active profile associated with the connector app and in absence of any active profile returns an error response.
So that means ProfileManagement.getProfile() can also return "existing inactive" profile. Is this assumption right? And if so, is there any reason for the divergent behavior of AppAccess and ProfileManagement.

Thanks and Regards
