Tutorial #6 introduces the concept of Unit Test and has me creating a unit test for a trigger I wrote.
First I want to mention that the eclipse plugin for SalesForce is very mature. It integrates with the SalesForce account I have. When I update code in the IDE, the server is updated. I can even Refresh from the server.
The language is similar to Java/C# but some concepts are new:
- Initializing Object is Simplified. I can just call
new MyObject(foo="bar", baa="asfd");
- Certain governor limits. 2 million chars
- SOQL Query Language
- Custom Test Framework
- Custom Code Coverage Tool
