There is something called service file which must be placed at a particular location. The service has a format in which it must be written. When you request a particular method, the daemon can start that service if the service file is written and placed at the location where the daemon searches for service files.

The examples of this can found in the dbus code in the test directory.

Subject: Reqd Help on D-Bus

We areworking on D-BUS over UbuntuLinux.
We have one requirement to be met,
which is explained in detail as below.
Suppose a D-BUS service, provides certain
methods, but is not currently running. One client application wants to
access one of the methods provided by the service, and at that time only this
service should start executing as a daemon. Is there any D-BUS
functionality using which we can achieve this
Can you please guide us on
how can it be
you in advance. 
Best Regards,
