Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (MQTT-15) Should the CONNECT packet Protocol Name and Protocol Version fields be changed?

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/MQTT-15?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=33644#action_33644 ] 

Allan Stockdill-Mander  commented on MQTT-15:

I have no issue with removing the first two bytes that indicate the size of the Protocol Name string, and agree its size should be constant between versions.
I would however want there to be a notional difference between the Protocol Name and the Protocol Level, the latter remaining a single integer rather than a character representation of the version number. It would be simpler to programatically determine whether a client Protocol Level is a supported one.

> The draft specification states that the Bytes 1 to 9 of the variable header section of the CONNECT packet are currently a spec encoded string (2 prefix bytes indicating the string length followed by the string data) containing the letters 'MQIsdp' followed by the number 3. Changing these fields would be an easy way to differentiate between old and OASIS spec compliant clients.
> Reasons for wanting to differentiate between clients include using discrimination of access to MQTT servers and understanding/implementing behavioural differences.
