fire alarm manager in every 5 min android

Issue

i want to make a service which fire alarm manager in every 5 min interval when my application is running only..so how to do it?

 Intent intent = new Intent(this, OnetimeAlarmReceiver.class);
  PendingIntent pendingIntent = PendingIntent.getBroadcast(context, REQUEST_CODE, intent, 0);

  AlarmManager alarmManager = (AlarmManager) getSystemService(ALARM_SERVICE);
  alarmManager.set(AlarmManager.RTC_WAKEUP, System.currentTimeMillis() + (5 * 1000), sender);
   Toast.makeText(this, "Alarm set", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();

Solution

try this:

alarmManager.setRepeating(AlarmManager.RTC_WAKEUP, calendar.getTimeInMillis(), 5*60*1000, pendingIntent);

that alarm will be repeating forever until you cancel it, so you need to cancel it on getting the event when you no longer need it.
