I believe the best way to do this would be to use the About feature. You'll find links to the documentation for android bellow :

https://allseenalliance.org/docs-and-downloads/documentation/getting-started-alljoyn-about-feature-10-android-0 https://allseenalliance.org/docs-and-downloads/documentation/alljoyn-about-feature-10-usage-guide-android

About will give you the list of remote BusObjects and the interfaces they implements. If you need the definition of these interface you can call the Introspect() method of the Introspectable interface (implemented by all BusObjects). Unfortunately this only works for discovery, with the java sdk you cannot currently call methods on theses dynamically discovered interfaces.

This post is a wiki. Anyone with karma >75 is welcome to improve it.

But one time i've runned the Introspect() method can I obtain(copy) the interfaces definition to be able to use it in my client app? I explain it with an example....I'm in a shopping mall and all the shops offer an alljoyn service. All of them offer services and advertises their interfaces...If i want to create a session with a particular shop I need to implement that interface and create a proxy object, do you agree? So if i want to be able to communicate and use all the services in the mall i need to implement all the interfaces of all the shops in my client app (android app maybe) ??? There is a way to do this dynamically?
