    Apple's own apps such as Reminders show Badge count even if they are not running or after quitting them

    Other apps (some even with Helper apps) show badge when they are running, but it disappears as soon as you quit the application

    is there a way, client side, or programming side, we can do to always show this badge, even when the app is not running?

    Well, as there is no answer here,
    i'm going to post Parag Bafna's answer to me on another website, maybe that will be useful to some one:

    Yes, Create dock Tile Plug-in.

    When your application needs to customize the Dock tile, it manipulates the
    Code:
    NSDockTile
    object that was provided to the initial call to the
    Code:
    setDockTile:
    method. To dynamically change the application's Dock icon, you can draw a Dock icon using a custom view. See Using a Custom View to Draw a Dock Icon. To add text to a Dock icon, you can apply a badge label. See Changing the Text of a Badge Label.

    Hey, that's cool.

    Thanks for taking the time to come back and post the answer.

    I think I'll be using those links in my next project...
