Hi folks,

P.S. Just for info, i am new to j2me but studying lot to know more about it.

To start it, i want to have your suggestions regarding an app.

1) This app will standard and general user interface which will help users to store their rules like (mobile_number,action) -->> just an example.

2) Till this point it can be done but i want to have one process or preferably a task which should run indefinitely to monitor on above created rules and execute them.

Now link b/w 1 and 2 is this: there will be an option to start or stop the task or process.

And this process or task should not die once the application exits

So, how to go for the second thing?

Links, docs, blogs anything will work

I wanted to help, but sorry to say that i could not understand you fully.

1,You want the app to start and stop processes?Threads - not processes if i am not wrong.
2,Even on exit the app should run in the background?Some phones(eg Series 60 3rd edition onwards) supports multitasking. Which means you can hide your midlet UI, meanwhile your threads can still execute.

I agree. Here's the link:
