Just to make sure I understand what you're asking, you don't want the
client thread that's trying to connect to the broker to block until a
connection is completed, correct? You must be using the failover
transport to connect because it will block and wait for the connection
to be made based on its configuration:

If you use the straight TCP transport without the failover transport
the call will not block and wait:

As far as connecting to the broker in an asynchronous manner when
using the failover transport, such functionality does not exist

perl -e 'print unpack("u30","D0G)U8V4\@4VYY9&5R\"F)R=6-E+G-N>61E<D\!G;6%I;\"YC;VT*"
