How to check whether main application in Os X is requested to start which has a running background process

  • An Qt appliation is an MacOs app bundle with a background process (with its own typically hidden Gui) and a default Gui application. The background application has to continue even if the Gui application has finished.
    If the Gui application has been closed, reopening from MacOs, when the background application has been started, activates the background process.
    Is there a way to open the default Gui application, eg. by a notification received by the background application?
    Thank you for reading and your tips.
