There have been a number of discussions in the community on how to specify a broker's connection details in a uri.
The result of the community discussion is captured here - https://github.com/mqtt/mqtt.github.io/wiki/URI-Scheme
In summary, the following uri format is proposed:
The uri scheme could alternative be 'mqtts' to specify a secure TLS connection should be used.
Other connection-time options (clean session etc) could also be expressed as query parameters.
A path portion of the uri could be used to specify a specific topic.
This JIRA can be addressed by way of Committee Note, rather than as an addition to the spec itsef.
