nice to see your interest in HiveMQ and MQTT.
This is the HiveMQ community forum, where we will happily provide you with information help around all HiveMQ products and MQTT in general to the best of our abilities.
In your case you are looking for guidance in regards to the MQTT Client Library M2Mqtt. The HiveMQ staff cannot help you with that. Maybe you will get some answers, if you try out the M2Mqtt community.

Kind regards,
Florian from the HiveMQ Team.
