    Details

      Description

      Synopsis
      Qt Creator android plugin is using adb to start remote process on android device/emulator. To do so it invokes following sequence(AndroidRunnerWorker::asyncStartHelper())

      adb shell am start <extra_args> <intent_name>
      

      In case of sample project(attached) where there is no activity, but only service the sequence shall be:

      adb shell am startservice <extra_args> <intent_name>
      

      Otherwise the only thing that user sees is in Qt Creator is:

      
      Exception occurred while executing:
      java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Bad component name: org.qtproject.example.service/
      	at android.content.Intent.parseCommandArgs(Intent.java:7254)

      	at android.os.Binder.execTransactInternal(Binder.java:1021)
      	at android.os.Binder.execTransact(Binder.java:994)
      Failed to start the activity.
      
      
      "org.qtproject.example.service" died.
      
      

      Workaround
      Use adb console directly

      Expected behavior
      Android run settings widget allows to select whether target application is activity (default) or service based intent.
