Re: [paho-dev] Differences between paho-c and mosquitto

Hi Kristóf,

sorry for the late reply, I didn't see it in March.  Roger Light, the author of the Mosquitto C++ library, is now deprecating it in favour of the Paho C++ library (see the Mosquitto blog).

One of the main differences in the libraries is that the Paho one includes support for persistence - the ability for a application to close and then reopen at a later time starting at the same point.  The other differences are probably mainly a question of style.

Hi all,

I would like to apply a robust MQTT cpp library on linux system in my project. I have seen there are two directions of development of this topic by eclipse. Which one is called mosquittopp ( and second one is called paho.mqtt.cpp ( Whereas I found a few of forum in this topic, I can't decide which is the best from aspects like up-to-date, robustness, stability.

Mainly I am interested in when I should choose mosquittopp and when paho.mqtt.cpp?

Probably the answer lies in details, I saw mosquittopp based on mosquitto until paho.mqtt.cpp based on paho.mqtt.c. Which are the differents between two C library?

Most important aspects for me:
- The project is compiled on AMD and ARM architecture, used OS: Ubuntu and Debian.
- Fast C/C++ bugs fixes and supports.
- stability, robustness.

If this question already asked, I am sorry and please link to me that section of topic where I can find the answer.

Thanking your reply in advance.
Best regards,
Makó Kristóf
