 oing a broadcast is definitely better than making people sit around
watching all the time. Still, it is better yet not to rely on either -- if
you are relying on this to keep your data in sync, you can pretty much be
guaranteed that one way or another in some situation you will get out of
sync. :}

1. Call to onDestroy() method of Service does not take place immediately from inside Activity

The doc for stopServices says: "Request that a given application service be
stopped." Key words being "request" and "stopped".

A service can be both started and have connections bound to it. In such a

My understanding: You're asking the system to stop the service, not to
destroy it. That will happen automatically, later, when it determines the
Service is no longer being used. For example, you could have another
activity that is bound to the service, so although it can be stopped, it
wouldn't be destroyed.

Why is this causing you a problem?

2. renaming a image file on sd card

i have to change the name of a jpg file , for that i have written the
following code

sdcard = Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory();
from = new File(sdcard,imagePath.substring(8).toString());
to = new File(sdcard,"/DCIM/RoseVille_"+Info.getText()
+"_"+Amount.getText()+"_"+timeStampFormat.format(n ew Date())+".jpg");

/// if renamming is successfull;

this code creates a new file with the required name while the file
which i wanted to change is still their on sd card , if i remount the
sd card then the old file gets deleted and the renamed file remains

so my problem is how to rename the file without remounting the sd card

thanks and regards
