  • Apex Unit Testing on Salesforce
    3 projects | | 26 Feb 2021
    For the eCars app that we’re building, the activity will be to write an APEX test class for the PdfCreateService that we used in the prior session to call a Heroku microservice for generating PDF documents. The eCars code can be found at the linked Github repo and I have also included a link to the specific PdfCreateService class. If you have not gone through the exercise of pulling the code into a Salesforce Developer org or a scratch org, you’ll want to review some of the previous articles to take that pre-requisite step or follow the instructions in the Github repo on how to clone and deploy the application.
  • Javascript Unit Testing
    3 projects | | 16 Feb 2021
    The Javascript car configurator app we are going to test can be found on the eCars app Github repository. If you’ve been following along with this series, then you should have already done some previous setup work installing the repo in VS Code and deploying it to a Salesforce scratch org.

    To start, let’s review the steps for Automated Deployment as also listed on the readme section in the Github repo. Julian has created a script (a Node.js program that will make this process easier) to get this up and running in the Salesforce and Heroku platforms. All of the installation pre-reqs, keys, and steps to configure your operating system before we move forward with deployment can be found here.
