Android :: Start A Service Which Is Defined In A Different Package?

Apr 25, 2010

I have two apps, one runs in namespace com.gtosoft.voyager and the other is com.gtosoft.dash. From com.gtosoft.dash I would like to start up the service which is defined in com.gtosoft.voyager...

I think I need an intent, but what arg(s) would I pass to the intent before kicking it off with startService()?

If they were in the same package I could just use

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

Android :: Activity Is Unable To Start Service In Same Package / What I Am Missing?

Jun 9, 2009

I have a service class my.app.MyService that I'm attempting to launch from my.app.MyActivity as follows:

Intent svc = new Intent( this, MyService.class );

The manifest contains the entries:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_BACKGROUND_SERVICE" />

<service android:name =".MyService" />

LogCat gives the message:

"Unable to start service Intent { comp={"my.app/ my.app.MyService" } } : not found"

Could someone kindly let me know what I am missing?

Android :: How To Start A Remote Service In Android That Is Implemented In Another App - Different Package

Jun 19, 2010

i'm a bit stuck with remote services in android. thing is i implemented a remote service in package "a.b.c" and i want other applications to be able to access this service. i got rid of the whole crappy aidl-stuff and designed the "interface" of the service to work via broadcasted intents. works fine so far...

problem is: how do i get a different application (different package, different project, maybe even a different developer, ...) to start/stop the service?

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

This will crash my app immediately on startup. what did i do wrong? how will i get this to work?

once it's running, commands and data will be passed via broadcasts. so that should be no real problem...

Android :: How To Check If User Defined Service Is Already Running

Sep 6, 2010

I have a service that is running within the context of my application. It gets invoked at the start of the activity and then gets update when new data is inserted or deleted from the database. The problem is that everytime I start the activity , it restarts the service. As you may have guessed - not a very intuitive design. Therefore I was wondering if there is a way to determine if the service is already running before starting it. I know I can bind to the service but I do not want that since the main activity needs to exits after the database operation is completed. I know for system services, you can get the service details from the application context. How do you do it for user defined service?

Android :: Start An Activity In Another Package

Jan 25, 2009

My application has 2 packages because one is shared with my other applications. I want to start an activity of the shared package.

I tried the following: Intent intent = new Intent(); intent.setClassName(shardedPackageName,sharedActivityName); startActivity(intent);

It throws an ActivityNotFoundException and suggests that the activity might not be in the manifest. But how do I list an acitivity from another package in the manifest?

General :: Simple Service Force Stopping Package?

Jul 17, 2012

OS: Ice Cream Sandwich
Device: Motorola Xoom

I am having issues with a simple service not running correctly. The logcat shows some force stopping on the installed apk. Also the broadcast receiver should listen to android.intent.action.ACTION_POWER_CONNECTED but it is not.

This all worked on froyo 2.2 on a samsung galaxy tab.

Here is the snippet from logcat when I do an 'adb install testService.apk:

Code:
D/AndroidRuntime(15251):
D/AndroidRuntime(15251): >>>>>> AndroidRuntime START com.android.internal.os.RuntimeInit <<<<<<
D/AndroidRuntime(15251): CheckJNI is OFF
D/AndroidRuntime(15251): Calling main entry com.android.commands.pm.Pm
I/ActivityManager( 153): Start proc com.android.defcontainer for service

[code]....

Android :: Start Service Without Using Any Activity

Oct 16, 2009

My application has a background process which continuously waits on a socket for receiving messages and it should be started only once and at the time of application starting.Thus i want to do that background job in a service.

The service should not be started from the activity ,it should be started at the application starting.

How can i define the service,which will be started at the time of application starting?

If at all the service is started from activity.The activity can be destroyed and restarted.when this happens the service also be restarted .

Android :: Intermittent Service Start

May 15, 2009

We have a service. bindService() returns true. But our ServiceConnection is never called with onConnect(). The onCreate() of the service is never executed (neither is the onBind(), of course).

Except sometimes! (twice now, out of many many tries).

Remote service, local service, intent-filter, direct class invocation, "procedure" attribute, no procedure attribute, cupcake, 1.1, emulator, device ... we've tried 'em all!

We belive the service is found, and in the remote case, we see the new process always created ... but the dang service just isn't started. We aren't specifying any security settings and writing the simplest manifest entry we can....

Android :: Service Start And Ui Hanging

Mar 13, 2009

I have moved some intensive processing from my main thread to a service. My UI is hanging and then crashing when I start the service, even if I put the service start in a new thread started via

Thread updateThread = new Thread(null, backgroundRefresh2, "new_thread"); updateThread.start();

What am I doing wrong? Also, it seems like the cause of the eventual crash in the service/worker thread doesn't show up in LogCat.
