public class ServiceCompat extends Object
Helper for accessing features in {@link} introduced after API level 4 in a backwards compatible fashion.

Fields Summary
public static final int
Constant to return from {@link}: if this service's process is killed while it is started (after returning from {@link}), then leave it in the started state but don't retain this delivered intent. Later the system will try to re-create the service. Because it is in the started state, it will guarantee to call {@link} after creating the new service instance; if there are not any pending start commands to be delivered to the service, it will be called with a null intent object, so you must take care to check for this.

This mode makes sense for things that will be explicitly started and stopped to run for arbitrary periods of time, such as a service performing background music playback.
