Alarm Manager

Does Alarm Manager work on QNX? By which I mean is it possible to set alarms and use PendingIntents etc

I'm not clear on whether there is an underlying Android infrastructure that is always active in the backgrond or whether the "Player"instantiates a sand-boxed environment each time you open an Android app?

On a similar note, is it possible to use services? My app relies on a service running in the same task which may outlive the activities of that task.

Thanks for any insights!

Re: Alarm Manager

I'm working on something at the moment with the Alarm but I can't figure out what the equivalent of pressing 'Menu' is within the simulator.

If you go to the online app converter (https://bdsc.webapps.blackberry.com/android/bpaa/) it will check the compatibility of your app and should spew out a complaint if what you are trying to do isn't supported.

Re: Alarm Manager

Clicking menu is the same as for other apps on the PlayBook: swipe from the bezel on top down.
