how to create Socket connection in Android?

I have an application where i need to create socket connection. My requirement is, once my socket connection is established it need to be alive until i personally close it. Every 3 minutes i have to send data packets to the other end. Can anyone provide me some code sample with will help me to do this?


Here's another example for socket usage: Incorporating socket programming into your applications

You might want to make that a Service as well, so that the application doesn't need to be active all the time (see the wake-lock issue mentioned in Peter's answer)
