I'm trying to communicate a couple of programmes. I'm getting some troubles when I use the last will function. My code is this:

import paho.mqtt.client as mqtt
def on_message(client, userdata, msg):
    print 'Received: ' + msg.payload

client = mqtt.Client()
client.on_message = on_message

client.connect('localhost', 1883)


import paho.mqtt.client as mqtt

client = mqtt.Client()

client.will_set('hello/will', 'Last will', 0, False)
client.connect('localhost', 1883)

client.publish('hello/world', 'Regular msg', 0, False)

The output:
Received: Last will

I should receive only the regular message because I use client.disconnect() to close the connection. If I comment the will_set line, I get the regular message. I also tried publishing both on the same topic and it doesn't work. Any guess??

Hi there,

I'm fairly certain we've already discussed this with you on IRC, but if not the answer is that calling disconnect() doesn't guarantee that the DISCONNECT message is sent. All functions that send data are asynchronous. You need to call e.g. loop_start() or loop_forever() to ensure the network data is processed. You could also look into using the paho.mqtt.publish.single() function, which does this for you.
