Starting service while device boot-up

Is it possible to launch a service during android boot-up scenario. I
am aware that we can use a BroadcastReceiver to handle
ACTION_BOOT_COMPLETED intent and from that launch a scenario but can
it be done in such fashion that during device boot-up the service will
be started automatically by Android.

intent is received and for other certain intents too.

Thank you,

You can launch the service from the init.rc file.

 Hi Srikant,

Can I also mention this in the file to start my
service automatically during boot-up of Android.

Thank you,

 Hi Soumya,

I just saw the code, it starts the various services
like Audio, HW, Alarm etc. by adding these server threads to the main
System Server.

You can try adding your service in this file and see, and let us know
the result.
