What You Will Learn

  • Creating triggers, and the best practices for writing them
  • Developing a number of Visualforce controllers and extensions
  • Integrating third-party web APIs into your Apex code
  • Writing unit tests that cover testing bulk safety, user and profile settings, and negative tests
  • Creating a Lightning component for use in Salesforce1

In Detail is an extremely powerful, scalable, and secure cloud platform, delivering a complete technology stack, ranging from and security to workflow and the user interface. With's cloud platform, you can build any business application and run it on your servers.

The book will help you enhance your skillset and develop complex applications using It gets you started with a quick refresher of's development tools and methodologies, and moves to an in-depth discussion of triggers, bulkification, DML order of operations, and trigger frameworks. Next, you will learn to use batchable and schedulable interfaces to process massive amounts of information asynchronously. You will also be introduced to Salesforce Lightning and cover components―including backend (apex) controllers, frontend (JavaScript) controllers, events, and attributes―in detail.

Moving on, the book will focus on testing various apex components: what to test, when to write the tests, and―most importantly―how to test. Next, you will develop a changeset and use it to migrate your code from one org to another, and learn what other tools are out there for deploying metadata. You will also use command-line tools to authenticate and access the Rest sObject API and the Bulk sObject API; additionally, you will write a custom Rest endpoint, and learn how to structure a project so that multiple developers can work independently of each other without causing metadata conflicts.

Finally, you will take an in-depth look at the overarching best practices for architecture (structure) and engineering (code) applications on the platform.

Style and approach

A step-by-step tutorial, with plenty of tips and tricks that will help you develop complex applications.
