Does Alljoyn need root acces?

I've recently found out about Alljoyn and I would like to ask if developing Alljoyn app needs Android devices to be rooted. Also can you point a simple demo to develop apps using Alljoyn. Thanks in advance!

EDIT: Also, can I use services of different release versions? For example using version x on release, then y on the other services. Right now, the current version for Release SDK is 15.09.00a and other services are lower. Is it okay to use them that way?

Answer

You don't need root access in order to develop Android applications that use Alljoyn library. The samples are located in the following folder (SDK Android 15.09a):

core/alljoyn-15.09.00a-rel/java/samples

Not sure about using different version, for instance Core SDK 15.09 and Lighting SDK 15.04
