Hey Guys,

I'm playing with android webview.. and I would like to have it running background whenever I press home button... Please let me know if this is possible... Here are the codes, maybe I need to tweak anything ..

package trektrak.GeoWebView;

import android.app.Activity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.webkit.GeolocationPermissions;
import android.webkit.WebChromeClient;
import android.webkit.WebStorage;
import android.webkit.WebView;
import android.webkit.WebViewClient;


public class GeoWebViewActivity extends Activity {


    public class GeoWebViewClient extends WebViewClient {
        @Override
        public boolean shouldOverrideUrlLoading(WebView view, String url) {
            // When user clicks a hyperlink, load in the existing WebView
            view.loadUrl(url);
            return true;
        }
    }


    public class GeoWebChromeClient extends WebChromeClient {
        @Override
        public void onGeolocationPermissionsShowPrompt(String origin,
                GeolocationPermissions.Callback callback) {
            // Always grant permission since the app itself requires location
            // permission and the user has therefore already granted it
            callback.invoke(origin, true, false);
        }
    }

    WebView mWebView;


    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.main);
        mWebView = (WebView) findViewById(R.id.webView1);

        mWebView.getSettings().setJavaScriptCanOpenWindowsAutomatically(true);
        mWebView.getSettings().setBuiltInZoomControls(true);
        mWebView.setWebViewClient(new GeoWebViewClient());

        mWebView.getSettings().setJavaScriptEnabled(true);
        mWebView.getSettings().setGeolocationEnabled(true);
        mWebView.setWebChromeClient(new GeoWebChromeClient());
        // I'm Loading the url ... 
        mWebView.loadUrl("http://.../.../");
    }

    @Override
    public void onBackPressed() {
        // Pop the browser back stack or exit the activity
        if (mWebView.canGoBack()) {
            mWebView.goBack();
        }
        else {
            super.onBackPressed();
        }


        mWebView.setWebChromeClient(new WebChromeClient() {
          @Override
          public void onReachedMaxAppCacheSize(long spaceNeeded, long totalUsedQuota,
                       WebStorage.QuotaUpdater quotaUpdater)
          {
                quotaUpdater.updateQuota(spaceNeeded * 2);
          }
    });

    mWebView.getSettings().setDomStorageEnabled(true);


    mWebView.getSettings().setAppCacheMaxSize(1024*1024*10);


    String appCachePath = getApplicationContext().getCacheDir().getAbsolutePath();
    mWebView.getSettings().setAppCachePath(appCachePath);
    mWebView.getSettings().setAllowFileAccess(true);
    mWebView.getSettings().setAppCacheEnabled(true);


}
}

so far, I enabled the webcached... and I need one more... I need it to be running on the background
