Custom service implementation

Hi All, I am new in BB and I have a question.

I would like my BB application to run in background and works as service. (furthermore, this application should have a simple UI for service configuration)

Are there some ways to implement it ?



PS. I am using JDE 4.7

Re: Custom service implementation

You can create an application with 2 entry points.  One can autorun on startup and launch your background process.  The second can be used to display your GUI.  Have a look at the links below for examples.
