The ConsoleApplicationLauncher class provides the ApplicationTypeLauncher implementation for non-graphical, console applications.

Any Linux executable may be a console application. Console applications are distinguished from regular, GUI applications by the "ConsoleApplication" property in their content description being set to "1".

Console applications are started whenever any application is sent to their application channel. They do not respond to any messages specifically. Qtopia does not try to manage (or understand) the life cycle of console applications. An application is considered "Running" as soon as the executable is started (as opposed to regular Qtopia applications that must create the QtopiaApplication object first).
