    For those who are familiar with testing in Javascript but not in APEX or vice-versa, here are some key things to note. The Apex language comes with system methods for writing apex unit tests classes. For JavaScript, there are a number of different testing frameworks but Salesforce recommends using Jest for Lightning Web Components and LWC OSS because of its popularity, ease-of-use, and open-source framework. Jest for Lightning Web Components is available at the sfdx-lwc-jest Github repo. The following table draws some comparisons between the frameworks.

    When first starting out doing development, I did a lot of copy-pasting and editing existing code. There is no shame in this; it’s all part of the learning process. Luckily, in the APEX Recipes Github repository, we can find some APEX Recipes with bite-sized snippets of code for almost everything that you might need. The code samples found here are also “production quality,” so it would be a useful exercise to review and compare it with any existing code you’ve written to gain some insights into what Salesforce considers best practices.
