Joining and association difference

0 votes
Could anyone please explain the difference between "joining" (or rejoining) and "association" in Zigbee networks?
I thought they were quite the same but the below phrase found on the user guide is getting me high!
"If multiple rejoining attempts fail, or if NJ = 0xFF, the device attempts to join using association"
So please, what is the difference?
Many thanks,

They mean the same thing. Joining is the act of Associating where by Associated means that the Joining process is completed.
