Creating a connection profile and connecting to a broker




To create a connection profile and connect to a broker, follow these steps:


  • Open MQTT.fx and click on the Settings icon in the toolbar.



  • In the Connection Profiles tab, click on the + button to add a new profile.



  • Name your profile and enter the broker address and port number. For example, you can use broker.hivemq.com:1883, which is a free public broker provided by HiveMQ. You can also enable SSL/TLS encryption if needed.



  • If your broker requires authentication, go to the User Credentials tab and enter your username and password.



  • If you want to customize other settings, such as client ID, keep alive interval, clean session flag, etc., go to the General tab and make your changes.



  • Click on OK to save your profile.



  • Select your profile from the drop-down menu in the toolbar and click on the Connect button. You should see a green indicator in the bottom right corner that shows you are connected.



Publishing messages to a topic




To publish messages to a topic, follow these steps:


  • In the main window, go to the Publish tab.



  • In the Topic field, enter the name of the topic you want to publish to. For example, you can use test/topic. You can also use wildcard patterns, such as test/+/subtopic, which matches any topic that starts with test/ and ends with /subtopic.



  • In the Message field, enter the content of your message. You can use plain text or JSON format. For example, you can use Hello world! or "message": "Hello world!".



  • In the QoS field, select the quality of service level for your message. You can choose between 0 (at most once), 1 (at least once), or 2 (exactly once). The higher the QoS, the more reliable the delivery, but also the more network overhead.



  • In the Retain field, check or uncheck the box to indicate whether you want to retain your message on the broker or not. If you retain your message, it will be stored on the broker and delivered to any new subscribers that subscribe to the same topic.



  • Click on the Publish button to send your message. You should see a confirmation message in the logging console.
