Launch and manage daemons/background processes on PlayBook

Hi,

 

I'm not very confident on that one, but just in case:

 

In the QNX documentations, I found daemon() it seems unlikely this will be allowed for us on the PlayBook though.
Is there a way we can launch/run/deploy/manage/access daemons and background processes on the PlayBook, I'm open to any suggestions, including rooting if necessary.

 

Thanks!

Hello,

This is currently not available. In order to see what is currently available for developers, please consult the BB NDK documentation as opposed to the QNX documentation.

Thanks,

Re: Launch and manage daemons/background processes on PlayBook

Hi,

 

Are there any plans to support for 3-rd party developers with creating their own background processes with no UI?

 

Best regards,

Michael

Re: Launch and manage daemons/background processes on PlayBook

similar, though not exactly the same, is there any support for apps that don't launch a window?

 

i'd like my app to just do something when launched (by tapping on the icon) and then exit without presenting a window to the user.

 

is that possible?
