Eclipse Paho and MQTT - Java messaging in the Internet of Things

A session at JAX London 2013

Wednesday 30th October, 2013

5:00pm to 6:00pm (GMT)

What is Paho? In the Maori language, paho means “broadcast, make widely known, announce” – and in this talk we’d like to make sure that more people get to know about Paho, a very cool messaging protocol contributed to the Eclipse Foundation by IBM and Eurotech. Paho is an implementation of MQTT – a lightweight, scalable, messaging system for connected devices and the Internet of Things. We’ll look at the protocol, some example code, how Paho relates to other projects, and talk about interoperability with other Java-based MQTT-capable brokers like HiveMQ and ActiveMQ (and maybe some non-Java ones as well...)
