Can i run/embedded HiveMq-community edition on android device?


  • I am working on a project in which I need to connect and Android device to a PC.
  • The plan is to install/run an open source MQTT broker on android device and develop the MQTT client library part.
  • Currently I do not have access to the physical android tablet and need to rely on Android studio emulator for development

My current testing platform

  • For the sake of development currently I am using the public HiveMQ broker, but this is only for testing and I did not find any discussion/instruction if it has any support for the Android device.
  • As a side note the HiveMQ community edition is open source.

** My Questions **

  • Can i run/embed the HiveMQ community edition on android device as a broker?


Hello Ashkanxy,

Welcome to the HiveMQ Community forum.

We do not support it on Android and never tested it as well. However, we have run successful tests on raspberry pi, which are also ARM-based.

In principle, a java 11 runtime environment is all that is necessary to run a broker. You can try if you have the required setup on the device.

Kind regards,
