Use Invokation Framework to mimic background processing

[ Edited ]



Is it possible for a Target Service to continuously invoke itself? (http://developer.blackberry.com/native/beta/documentation/app_integration.html)


If the application that invoked this target service is terminated, is the service destroyed are does it continue to run?


Thank you.

Re: Use Invokation Framework to mimic background processing

What Target Service are you invoking?

The only background services allowed are those provided by the system, creating your own service is not supported at this time.

I recommend that you look at using push if you wish to avoid running in the background.
