Question Communication Handling using Service in Blackberry 4.5

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

I am developing an app. (like google talk) which at phone boot-up starts a background service which is continuously running. This service interacts with UI (means any request to server is first sent from UI to service & from service to server) & any response is sent to UI through service.

What i know to start background service at boot up is "Create an alternate entry point and use that to start the background service. "

Code:
right click the project properties then go to Application tab, then check "Auto run on startup" / "System Module"
is it right?

In Android u can achieve this Service using system-defined Service class.
I want to do it (UI & Service) in one project. How to achieve this in Blackberry 4.5?

Any solution?
