Notes about Tatsoft FrameworX embedded broker

Tatsoft FrameworX has a built-in MQTT Broker (TMQTTBroker), intended to supply a simple out-of-box solution for the development environment or embedded edge devices. That tools doesn’t have the administration features available at HiveMQ broker, therefore for production and enterprise environments we recommend the HiveMQ broker instead of the embedded one.
