Re: [paho-dev] Java 8 MQTT Client

In the same vein, I'm sure I'm not alone in using the Paho client primarily on Android devices, which most like won't be moving to Java 8(or 7 for that matter) anytime soon.  Having just recently readded Java to my normal languages I don't know if the language differences between 1.4 and 6 would themselves justify a newer implementation, but at the very least Android will need to be a supported platform by something.


Thanks for the update, Al - this was discussed on the project call this week (minutes to be posted shortly on the wiki). I know this has been a topic of interest to a lot of folks wanting to shed some of the legacy code!

Please feel free to discuss further here, or contribute to the Paho wiki page - I know topics like the use of NIO have been raised in the past, and with Java 8 and a new embedded edition on the horizon this is a good time to think ahead.

Before anyone gets too excited, there isn't one... yet.
As you may be aware the current Java client targets 1.4.2 for JavaME compatibility, which means there are 13 or so years of language features that aren't made use of and I know, at least in the IRC channel, that this has discouraged some people from getting more involved.

As such the following page ( exists for people provide thoughts, comments and ideas on how a Java 8 MQTT implementation might look and discuss what's new since 1.4.2 and how it could be used/help.

If people are interested in doing this please let me know and get involved.
