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.
