MQTT.Cool Hook Java API
The MQTT.Cool Hook is a custom pluggable component which provides a powerful extension mechanism to integrate your own authentication and authorization functionalities into the MQTT.Cool server.
The MQTT.Cool Hook Java API lets you easily develop any Hook, which will be then packaged and deployed into the MQTT.Cool installation. Once loaded inside the running server process, it will be able to intercept specific events originated from the client side in order to apply fine-grained custom authorization checks as per your own security needs.
