    I used StartService quite successfully in recent past to run an app immune to going to sleep or being killed while in background. I have two(2) questions.

    1) StartService is now not allowed and if you execute this command the App will crash?

    2) If the latter is true and I'm using a tcp listener how to do I keep that process alive without having to close and reopen thereby disconnecting all active users?
