Hi I want to write an small application which publish a service with the 
content (text-record). The publisher should change this text. How is 
this done?

Do I have to remove service and recreate it with new text (like the 
code-part below)? Or can I change text-record "on the fly"? I don't want 
to remove/recreate service. :/
