  • 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.

    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.

    So how do we do this? First, the configuration information data gets sent from Salesforce to the Heroku microservice. Heroku is using Node.js and a few libraries/modules to achieve this—specifically, Fastify, PDFmake, and JSforce. One of the beauties of Heroku is the ability to combine all of these libraries to build powerful applications for a variety of use cases. Now some descriptions of each library:
