Default How to detect when your application is about to die?

Please Login to Remove!

Is there an event or exception that your application will get when it is about to die?

I don't quite understand what you mean by die. is it because you called exit()? is it because it finished normally (return;)? it is because it crashed?

What I meant by "die" is when your cod file is removed, all threads from your app wil be removed too.

It appears the following will do the trick.

Well, after some coding, it appears our application does not even get thrown a Throwable when terminated. I believe while application loader is syncing with handheld, Intellisync is given total control.

There goes the chance to cleanup after yourself :P
