    I am going repost Chih-fan Hsin's problem explanation as I am running into the same issue and it is quite thorough. Can you provide any direction with the below issue? Is there a more appropriate forum to post this to?


    I think that there may be an issue with current getajxml.exe and alljoyncodegen.exe, when there are interfaces with the same name under 2 different object paths.
    My scenario is to write a Win UWP AllJoyn Client app that controls Aeon Lab Smart Switch via Device System Bridge. The Aeon Lab Smart Switch is used as a demo/sample codes for Device System Bridge.
    The main control interface is "". However, both /Switch object path and /Enable_Wattage_Reports object path have the same interface.

    Issue 1: When I use "getajxml.exe" to generate the introspection xml, the "node" does not specify which object path to use. Therefore, I got the same xml for 2 different object paths.
    Issue 2: Even when I manually add name="/Switch" to node and use "alljoyncodegen.exe", the resulting codes generated (I believe) do not consider the object path.
    In auto generated AllJoynHelpers::GetObjectPath(), it only returns the first object path for that interface name. Therefore, I alwasy got /Enable_Wattage_Reports object path, not the intended /Switch object path.

    Can some one shed some light about these issues?

    Joe- sounds like a cool project! I'm investigating the answer to your question above... Will post the result when I get more info.

    Joe- #1 is by design based on limitations/definition of introspection in DBus. Regarding #2, please contact me (via Twitter: @gavingear) and I will help you dig deeper into the issue. Thanks!

    As mentioned in limitation section, "If you are running Windows 10 IoT Core in "Embedded Mode", this loopback exception is automatically applied..."

    How do I run Windows 10 IoT Core in "Embedded Mode"?
