Android :: Running Application As Service

Sep 9, 2009

I want the application to run in background. This application should run continuously and should never get killed. Will running application as Service solve this issue? The application should get started automatically on start up. I don't need any GUI for this application. The main issue is Service getting Killed. Does service get killed ? and in what conditions will that happen?

Android :: System Kills Service / No Other Resource Consuming Application Is Running

Mar 9, 2010

I just would like to ask if anyone have encountered this strange behavior with other phone models or specifically HTC Tattoo wherein I have this service running for almost 5 hrs then after sometime the system kills the service. The phone does not restart actually nor any other 3rd party applicaton running in the background. Its only the service I have is running. I was wondering what were the causes that would force to close my service. Another strange thing is that before the service was closed I still can see all the logs in the logcat but after I saw that the service was closed I don't see any log information already seems like the phone was totally disconnected from my eclipse.

Android :: Running Application On Emulator Running Older SDK

Jun 28, 2010

I have a project that builds against Android v2.1 . I can run it fine on a phone running 1.5 but when I try to launch it with an emulator running 1.5, the emulator doesn't show up on the list of available AVDs. I have the <uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="3"/> tag in my manifest but it doesn't make a difference.

Android :: Some App Make Their Service Running

Sep 26, 2010

How do some android app make their service restart even if killed from task manager? A good example is Lookout security app. What I guess is that it has registered for all common events that are announced like app installed unistalled, interenet available ,etc.Is this a way to keep your service running ?Another solution I found was to make 2 services monitoring each other, so if one gets killed restart another.Which one would be a proper approach? Is there any way in android to start booting automatically(if device is switched off) once connected to power source? I have never heard this on mobile platform.This is possible for PC through bios feature. Can it be done on android?

Android :: How Do I Get Data From A Running Service?

Aug 21, 2010

I have just started using services in Android and I have a made a simple service that is polling a server every 20 seconds. Now how can I get this data from my main activity (when it is active)? Alternatively the service could send it back do my main activity (but only if its active). I don't want to wake up my activity. I have read SDK examples of "Binding" but I can't find an example how to actually get something from the service. Just how to start and stop the Binding. From the example. If I have the "mBoundService" object in my activity how do I get my data from the service method called eg. "polling Data()"?

Android :: Long Running Service

Jul 27, 2010

I have an app that has a service with it. This service is started the first time you open the app is is suppose to run continuously in the background every two minutes. It seems that at some point though the service stops running or alarmManager stops scheduling/doing what is requested of it. Here is a breakdown of my code flow.

User opens the app,. Service is started, Inside the service I cancel any alarms that might be for this app then create a new one set for two minutes out, Once the alarm is set I call a GPS location check to get lat/lon, I then call up a .net web service to do some stuff with the lat/lon, Once text is returned I check that text for certain Items, If a certain item is found I send a broadcast out to a receiver that then creates a wakelock, starts a new intent to open an activity of my app then sounds an alarm, Right after I broadcast I call stopSelf() as well as calling stopSelf() if the text did not contain certain Items, I call finish() on the new activity I started if we go that far once the Active screen of my app is closed.

The reason I think something is dieing out here is because after some point in time usually once I wake up in the morning and check the phone I no longer see my GPS icon on my droid checking every two minutes.

Android :: Service Running On Seperate Thread

Nov 7, 2010

I have an application that starts on boot using a broadcast receiver, also I have an activity and a process, because the service must run always on the background I am starting the service on it's own process using the android:process manifest tag.The ui is only for presentational needs and I would like the user to be able to run the service even if the activity is not active.when I press the back button or the home button the activity's on destroy method is called and the service although seems its running (it appears on the task manager) its not behaving as supposed, it should connect to the net and send some data but every X time using an timer task but the task never fires so the data are never send.

Android :: Stop Service Only When There Are No Other Activities In App Running

Mar 13, 2010

Is there a way I can test if there are any other activities in my app still alive? I am looking to stop a service in an onDestroy method, but only want to do this if there are no other activities from my app still alive on the stack.

I have the call stop the service in the main activity's onDestroy() method. This works perfect EXCEPT that if a user launches my app, then launches a few activities in my app, then hits the home screen and RELAUNCHES my app, they will subvert my order and the main activity will now be above other activities of my app. From this state, if they hit the back button and 'back out' of my home screen they will trigger the onDestroy() method and kill the service even though there are other activities open on the stack. I want to avoid this by stopping the service ONLY if I am sure there are no other activities of mine open on the stack.

Android :: Service Running After Pressing Home Key

Nov 24, 2010

I have an Android service, created in OnCreate of first Activity of the application using StartService(). I need this service to be running throughout the life span of the application ie, all the activities in the application. But the service should not consume the resources after user pressed Home key or Back button. Is there any elegant way to do that other than stopping the service in onPause() method of all the activities?

Android :: Running Activity From Local Service

Sep 13, 2010

I'm trying to create a program with a service that runs every 10 seconds, puts the camera preview, taking a picture and then leaving the user to continue his work (closing down). Currently I have two problems:

1. After I'm taking the picture, the preview still there. There's no function like close() to return to the previous activity. How can I return to the previous activity?

2. I'm trying to run the above described activity from the run() function (from the timer class that execute the run() function every 10 seconds). When I do that, a runtime exception is raised. But when I start the above described activity from a button clicked (not from the timer) it works fine.

Android :: Getting And Stopping Single Running Service?

Sep 14, 2010

How can I identify and stop single running services? More specifically, once I got the running services on a List as in a chunk of code like:

ActivityManager activityManager = (ActivityManager) getSystemService(ACTIVITY_SERVICE); List<RunningServiceInfo> services = activityManager.getRunningServices(Integer.MAX_VALUE);

Is there any method to stop a single service, i.e to identify one and then stop it?

Android :: Check If Intent Service Is Already Running?

Apr 6, 2010

Sorry for the newbie question, but does anyone know how I can check whether an IntentService is already running? I'm starting an IntentService from onCreate within a normal Activity, and that means that if the user minimises and maximises the application, it gets called twice. I'm wondering if I need to use something like the solution here http://bit.ly/du3VW5 or whether there's a simpler way.

Android :: Bluetooth Headset Service Is Always Running?

On my phone, a dev phone, the bluetooth headset service is always running even though bluetooth connectivity is disable in the Settings app. Is this normal?

Android :: Running Background Service That Would Disable SMS

Jun 25, 2010

I'd like to include a feature in my application that would include a running background service that would disable SMS, if certain conditions were met (location for instance). Is there a way I can intercept the user wanting to open any SMS app and block it? Would a Broadcast Receiver be able to do the trick? Maybe a different way to go about this?

Android :: Does Google Voice App Need To Be Running For The Service To Work

Jun 19, 2010

I've never quite understood the connection. If you have a Google Voice phone number set to forward those calls to your cell phone, do you need to have the app running on your cell phone for this to work or can it be manually turned off?

I would imagine that the call forwarding would work regardless, but what about the app keeping track of those calls in a call list, or keeping track of the voicemails, etc.? Can you just open the app manually and all of this information will be there, or does it need to be running at all times in order to record the phone calls/voicemail as they come in?

Android :: Way To Find Out Current Running Activity From A Service?

Aug 4, 2009

I have been looking for this for a while but I can't find any way of doing it. A contrived example would be a service that simply displays the name of the current running activity as an Ongoing Notification. For instance, when the user is reading a particular email, the name of the activity (hopefully the email title!) would appear in the notifications window and when the user switches to read a text message, the notification would change to show the name of the new activity. Is there a way to do this in Android?
