    Execute code at regular intervals when app is running in background

    NilsTT Level 1

      Hello,

       

      What I've been asked to do is have an application poll a server every 5 minutes (or every hour or...) for data. This has to be done even when the app is running in background. More generally I would like my app to do something at a regular interval when it is running in the background

       

      I think I have once seen documentation for this, but after googling it for about an hour I can't seem to find it.

       

      As different platforms tend to do different things when an application is moved the the background, I can't just use a timer because it will not fire.

       

      Is there any support for this in flex?
