Service Doesn't Stop When Asked To Stop

Aug 2, 2012

Okay when user presses log out button what's supposed to happen is:

Code:
stopService(myIntent);
unbindService(mConnection);
mIsBound = false;

I need to shut down the service on background.Except the service restarts itself over and over again! Even if I kill the program from task manager the service restarts itself. Other programs aren't using the service. when I uninstalled the program the foreground program information popped up indicating it was STILL there(albeit this I solved by rebooting phone).

When user says he's finished with the program 'least he can expect is for the program to stay down rather than keep eating battery by acquiring GPS signal and sending them to server. The program is not intended to be "once you log in you need to Uninstall me and reboot phone to get rid of me!" type of program!

Android :: Activity Still Lagging When Run Stuff In Service And Handler.post Method / Do This Correctly?

Nov 18, 2010

I'm confused why is my activity still lagging, I use remote service that has few methods and each has its own work like download stuff, process data, compare stuff, etc... It will run in background and update data at selected intervals and notify user of changes over notify system.

The reason why remote service, because I will eventually add a widget, and service needs to stay running even if android kills the activity, so I unbind it on each onPause().
But as far I understand that part doesn't cause my issue.

But back to my problem... so my is Activity still lagging when I run stuff in service and handler.post method.

here is the code...

Also I wanted to add progressDialog to be updated in updateLayer(...) through Activity is a listener to this service, but thats not working well. Whats the best way to update progressDialog? Ever listener, handler, intent, or what?

So how do I do this correctly?

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 :: Force Service To Stop After Fixed Time?

Oct 14, 2010

I have a service which runs in the background when the user starts using my app. I am using it to do some posts to our server. I always close my service by calling stopSelf as soon as the posts have been made or failed.

But I recently observed two times that my service did not stop. I saw that in the running services in settings on my device that it has been sitting there for over a few hours.

So I was trying to see if I can alternatively set a timer using which I can force the service to stop after a few minutes no matter what.

Motorola Droid :: GTalk Service Starting All By Itself / Stop It?

Nov 23, 2009

So sometimes I'll go into my contacts and notice that some of them have the green ball lit up telling me that they are online in gtalk. Now I am not signed onto gtalk... but yet somehow I see that in my running services that GTalkService is running.

I can only assume that its eating away battery trying to see how is online and not. I certainly don't need this info unless I wish to go online myself... in which case I would actually go into the gtalk app.

ANyways, obviously i've been killing it in the running services, but it just comes back all on its own. ANy idea why or how to stop it?

Android :: How To Stop Service Started By BindService() With Bind_auto_create Option

Nov 18, 2010

I start service by using:

private ServiceConnection _serviceConnection = new ServiceConnection() {...}
bindService(new Intent(this, MainService.class), _serviceConnection, Context.BIND_AUTO_CREATE);

I want to 'restart' the service. (Let's not argue why I want to do that)
I do that by:

unbindService(_serviceConnection);
// Do some initialization on service
bindService(new Intent(this, MainService.class), _serviceConnection, Context.BIND_AUTO_CREATE);

I noticed service doesn't die(onDestroy doesn't run) until I call next bindService();
So some static initialization I did on service got cleared by onDestroy() implementation.

Question: How do you make sure unbindService() will stop service (run onDestory()),
so that I could do initialization after and re-run bindService()?

Android :: Failure To Connect Camera Service

Mar 11, 2010

I'm trying to write a basic camera app. The problem that I am facing is that it works fine in emulator but on the phone (Nexus one) it fails.

The point of failure is the very first call, i.e. Camera.open(). It fails on the phone saying "Failed to connect to camera service". Any idea what could be wrong? (BTW, I am calling this from my activity's onCreate funtion itself, could that be an issue?)

For the information, I do have the necessary Camera permissions specified in my manifest xml file.

Android :: Service Auto Restarts On Breakpoint When Debugging A Service

Jul 22, 2010

I am trying to run the sample soft keyboard included in the SDK. I am using the debugger, and the literature says that to use a breakpoint while debugging a SERVICE, I need to include:

android.os.Debug.waitForDebugger();

So here is the portion of the code I modified:

CODE:...........

I have put a couple of breakpoints, at the statements indicated by the comments.

This is what happens: the debugger first stops at the breakpoint1, for a few seconds. But then the service restarts. For the life of me I can't figure out what makes the service to restart.

Android :: How To Get Interface On Service Without Destroying Service At Unbind?

Mar 1, 2009

My service works exactly the way i want as long as i use start and stop and communicate using intents. However my activity needs to change the state of my service as well as retrieving state information.So i thought it would be nice to broadcast some kind of state_changed event from my service and use a binder interface to pull information from the service or change the services state based on user input.This works fine too. The only problem is that my service gets killed when i unbind it just as the documentation says.Is there any way to keep the service alive but still get an interface to control it directly. My activity offers the user a way to stop the service and the service kills itself anyway after it's work is done but i don't want the service to stop every time the activity is destroyed.

what I'm trying to do here is implement something like a peer-to-peer client. Being that, it will start a client thread and a server thread.I know Services themselves run in the main GUI thread, so I'll have to start a couple of independent threads (or Asynctasks?) for each server and client. The only thing I'm not so sure about is if I'll better have 1 Service starting 2 threads, or maybe 2 services, each one of them starting their own thread.

Android : How To Detect Correctly APN Changes?

Feb 10, 2010

In my application I need to react on APN changes (including going back and forth between WiFi and GSM connections) and change proxy settings in case it needs to be taken into account to connect with the network. I'm listening for ConnectivityManager.CONNECTIVITY_ACTION broadcasts to check for APN changes which contains 'reason' extra among others. Unfortunately the 'reason' for APN change is not documented, maybe it should not be used? I was using (with limited success) reason:apnChanged and reason:apnSetupComplete as indicators of APN change being done but that does not work well with going back and forth between WiFi and mobile connection. What is the correct way of listening for changes of current network APN/Interface?
