Re: [paho-dev] [mosquitto-dev] Java MQTT broker


Thanks for your answers, let’s see if Andrea is interested in joining the Mosquitto project - I will ask him!

I was going to respond along completely the same lines - that Mosquitto is the broker side of things...

I've had some really positive interactions with Andrea who created moquette in the past year or so, I think it would be brilliant to have him on-board and working with both Paho and Mosquitto (and other M2M/IoT projects) to take a Java broker forward.

I totally agree with you on the usefulness of an MQTT Java broker, and would absolutely welcome the contribution to Eclipse. 

As Mike says, the Mosquitto project is probably the right place, as that has been created for servers, albeit currently in C.  It would be either that or a new project.

I came across your discussion triggered by Scott in October regarding a Java-based MQTT broker implementation (see I tend to agree with Scott that it would indeed be worthwhile for Eclipse projects such as ECF (and Eclipse SmartHome :-)) to have a pure Java MQTT broker available within the EF.

A few weeks ago I came across the moquette project ( Just this week, the project lead approached me and he seems to be open to discuss involvements with EF/Paho, see!topic/openhab/dLX1DpWf_JQ.

Now I wonder, if there is any interest from your side as well. Or is Paho the wrong place to discuss as it is only interested in MQTT clients, not brokers?


Yes, that does sound like it would be very cool and helpful for many within the Eclipse community. Especially if it was also available as an OSGi bundle tested on Equinox and Concierge. I'm sure some helpful people here would be willing to help Andrea with that if needed :)

Eclipse Mosquitto[1] is the project implementing the broker side of MQTT, so a Java broker could perhaps find a home there.

I think that most of the Mosquitto folks are also on this list, but I've cross-posted just in case.
