[Headless Apps][Request] How do I respond to BroadCast Trigger such as System Start

[ Edited ]

I saw the example for Push Collector, felt that the samples and documentation was'nt enough , how can I make a simple headless app that starts on system start.

 

Im pretty sure a simple headless app that writes a hello world with the current date time file to the filesystem on system start would be a short, sweet and easily understandable example to everyone thats wants to create a headless app. As the start signal is broadcasted, there is no need for the numerous projects as seen in the push notification example, worse, I could not get that example to work because a push initiator app is needed.

 

I am sure many developers would agree with me on this.

 

A one project , system boot headless app that writes to the filesystem (or any other noticeable function for that matter), which is short, sweet and to the point.

 

EDIT 1 : 

After reading through the sample push collector, I have still no idea where to add entryPoints and which invoke target do I need to start my app on system started , any help ? My app has no ui , it justs needs to be invoked on system start to write a file. I have connected to the invokedRequest and invokeManager but do not know how to configure the bar-descriptor xml file and to define the invokeTargetId even after reading the sample and the sparse documentation.
