Re: [paho-dev] How to receive a "last will" message

Not sure if it's the same, probably depends on the client and where the exception happens, but  I was a bit confused at first about LWT. It is a message posted by the broker when it sees the client disconnect unexpectedly, not just any disconnect.

So if the exception handling on the client causes it to send a disconnect message to the broker then the LWT won't be sent. It will only be sent if the socket is dropped or some other scenario without a valid disconnect being sent.

   mqttClient = new MqttClient("tcp://", MqttClient.generateClientId());

   MqttConnectOptions connectOptions = new  MqttConnectOptions();

   //set will
   connectOptions.setWill(mqttClient.getTopic("lastwill"), new String("I am offline").getBytes(), 1, false);
   mqttClient.setCallback(new MqttCallback(){...}
