Qt Service Framework - portable background service



Is it possible to create a service that plays the role of background service using Qt Service Framework ?
I am thinking about a some kind of service that should start automatically at system boot and check some data periodically.
I want that this service can be portable – easily deploy on Symbian and Maemo for instance – so this is why I mentioned about Qt Service Framework.
As I can see in Qt Service Framework documentation a service can be created only on a client request. Is it any solutions to create/start such service without this client request ?

Best Regards,

Hi Pawel,

I have been playing around with ServiceFramework for a while now, if I have understood the services those are plugins. Meaning you can have a demon process which loads this service and runs your activity such as collecting information periodically at the startup and etc. Someone has to load the service who is your decision
