  • <quote>AllJoyn is written in C++, with multiple language bindings including Java, and supported with an open source SDK and APIs. The stack is “not just” a low-level communications protocol, but capable of solving “higher-level problems,” says the alliance. Designed to span physical layers and “bridge ecosystems,” AllJoyn is said to react to dynamic, ad-hoc network changes, enabling connections to persist as devices join and depart. </quote>
