 Hi guys.

I'm writing an application that use a service to play an audio file

I'm watching the LocalService.java and LocalServiceBinding.java
from the API DEMO

In the api demo, the LocalService.java make a notification in the
status bar, in my case it plays mp3 and make a notification. But that
doesn't matter.

My problem is that when the user press the "Back Button" the service
must stay active.
I want have the same behaviour as  when i press the "Home Button"...

Any help is welcome :D

ps:sorry for my eng

but using startService/stopService

----maybe... requires tests :::)))----

 Hey I ran into this problem a while back and was pulling my hair out.
The fix is easy (and you're on the right track)

You can still call bindService, you just have to call startService
first. If the service is started via bindService, then it will live
and die with the activity that called it, but if you start it with
startService and THEN bind it with bindService, it should stay alive

1. MS Exchange API

Hello All,

I am looking to make an application in which I have to read Email's
from MS Exchange server. I tried to search on API's provided by
Android 2.2 to do so but no luck yet. Is it possible to do so. Is
android gave open APIs to read and reply email through MS exchange. As
of now I am not very much worried about security and administrator
policy, right now my other module of app is in pilot mode with few
users. MS exchange read and reply can be a big boost to the feature

Thanks in advance.
