Create a new service

Services are defined by files located in /services.

Here is an example, myservice.service:

    [Translation]
    File=myservice-nct
    Context=MyService
    [Service]
    Actions = "doSomething()"
    Icon = MyServiceIcon
    Name[]=Do Something

Install the file with this code in the .pro file:

    service.files=$$PWD/myservice.service
    service.path=/services
    service.hint=nct
    service.trtarget=myservice-nct
    INSTALLS+=service

An application would register as providing this service by installing the file /services/myservice/<appname>.
