Hi,

When the user activity_pause the app, I want to send through job.postSting this information to a remote server.

I notice that, because the app is paused, the job is sent to the waiting queue ...

I found here that to avoid this, it's best to start a service.
Hereunder is how I do ...

Is it the correct way ?

somewhere in the 'main' module of the app :
B4X:
sub activity_pause()
       callsubdelayed("service","send2Server")
end Sub
in the 'service' module of the app :
B4X:
Sub Process_Globals
   Dim endJob As HttpJob
End Sub

Sub Service_Destroy
    Log("Entering service_Destroy")
End Sub

Sub    send2Server()
    Log("Entering  send2Server ....")
    endJob.Initialize("jobEnd",Me)
    endJob.PostString("http://myurl","mypayload")
End Sub

Sub jobDone(job As HttpJob)
    Log("Entering service-jobDone")
    If (job.Success) Then
        Service_Destroy
    Else
        Log("Error on "&job.JobName)
    End If
End Sub
BTW,
Should I add in the 'main' module an :
activity.Finish (if I want the app just no be just paused but definitly terminated)

?

Thanks in advance for yours remarks and comment
:)
