Based on the documentation and questions on rosjava, I am not certain whether installing rosjava replaces the normal ROS install or is just another library. Could someone clear this up for me please? I want to talk to an android device using ROS, but still need all of the normal ROS stacks. How does this work?

Thank you.

You are going to create an overlay for rosjava. So there will be a different set of setup files that you will source to switch between workspaces. So, your packages should be fine given that you properly install rosjava. Try sticking to the document.
