Programmatic Development using Apex and Visualforce (DEV-450)
Programmatic developers new to the Force.com platform who need to be able to write programmatic customizations using Apex and Visualforce
- At least a year of experience with programming in Java or another object-oriented programming language
- Basic knowledge of:
- Salesforce concepts and functionality
- Data modeling for relational databases
Are you a programmer who wants to understand how to customize applications programmatically on the Force.com platform In this course, you will learn the core of the Apex programming language and Visualforce markup in order to customize your Force.com applications. You will get hands-on experience building data objects (sObjects) and programmatically retrieving, manipulating, and storing the data associated with those objects. You will write custom logic using Apex triggers and classes, and test that logic using the built-in testing framework. You will explore how Apex code interacts with declarative customizations on the platform, and the nuances of working on a multi-tenant platform. Youll then examine common techniques for designing solutions in Apex. These activities will culminate in an exercise building a complex trigger that takes advantage of the declarative aspects of the platform. You will get hands-on experience writing Visualforce pages to customize your user interface and Visualforce controllers (in Apex) to modify the controller behavior behind the interface. Youll also explore design techniques and the built-in testing framework around Visualforce.
