CWAC-Wakeful Discontinued


#1

With the advent of JobIntentService, AFAIK, the use cases for my WakefulIntentService can be covered by Google-supported code. Hence, until some use case arises where WakefulIntentService (or something based on it) is clearly superior to JobIntentService, I am discontinuing the CWAC-Wakeful project.

The CWAC-Wakeful artifacts will remain available indefinitely. However, I plan no further releases, and I will eventually start turning off parts of the GitHub repository.

If you can think of a scenario for WakefulIntentService – taking into account that on Android 8.0+ background services cannot run very long – either reply here or file an issue on the project tracker.
