Re: [paho-dev] Android support (was Java 8 MQTT Client)


On the topic of Android if you look in the develop branch for the Java client there is a subproject which has the source of an implementation of an android service that wraps the current Paho Java client. I'd be interested in your (and anyone else on this mailing list) thoughts on the value and utility of this along with any ideas improvements or changes it might need.

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

    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
