There is plenty of disparate info on ros.org about creating Android apps compatible with ROS. What I can't find (in any complete fashion) is whether or not there exists a stand-alone jar library which I can add to a Java (Eclipse) project that will let me send and receive ROS messages, without requireing a full rosjava install.

I found this but without more information I can't tell if it's close to what I'm looking for: http://www.ros.org/wiki/android

I'm not sure what you're looking for. A library which implements ROS communication protocols is a ROS library. I suggest you look at rosjava.

I'm looking for "drop-in" ROS capability for mobile development. That is, I don't want to have to perform the entire ROS installation process (for various convenience reasons). Specifically, in the ideal case, I want a JAR that I can include in an Eclipse Android application...

... to provide some limited ROS compatibility with remote nodes, on a machine with a full ROS installation.

It's become apparent that the capability for which I'm looking doesn't yet exist. Thanks for the direction, WG guys.

You can also look at the sample Android projects here: http://code.google.com/p/rosjava/source/browse/?repo=android
