How to start any D-Bus service automatically

We are working on D-Bus over Ubuntu Linux.

We have one requirement to be met, which is explained in detail as

Suppose a D-BUS service, provides certain methods, but is not currently

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 goal.


I wrote a ".service" file at "/usr/share/dbus-1/services" and restarted
the linux.

Then, I tried to call one of the D-Bus method of that service.

But, still this service doesn't start automatically.


Can you please guide us on how can it be implemented?


Thank you in advance.
