Advanced Testing and Debugging using the Developer Console webinar


Published on

The Developer Console is your one-stop shop for developing on the platform. This application allows you to author and debug Apex code, create Visualforce pages, run tests on your programmatic artifacts, and to inspect your org data via query.

Join us as we dig deeper into the comprehensive debugging, profiling, and testing capabilities of the Developer Console.

Watch this webinar to:

Learn how to run tests using the Developer Console
See how to examine log results using the Developer Console
Understand how to analyze the performance of your org’s operations
Learn about checkpoints, the equivalent of breakpoints, for debugging
Explore the query editor functionality to get better access to your data

Have questions? §  We have an expert support team at the ready to answer your questions during the webinar. §  Ask your questions via the GoToWebinar Questions Pane. §  The speaker(s) will choose top questions to answer live at the end of the webinar. §  Please post your questions as we go along! §  Only post your question once; we’ll get to it as we go down the list.Join the conversation: #forcewebinar
  6. 6. Agenda §  Testing Apex •  Why test? •  When test? •  How test? §  Code Coverage §  Advanced Debugging •  Log Inspector •  Checkpoints –  Set checkpoints –  View memory contents –  Inject logicJoin the conversation: #forcewebinar
  7. 7. Assumptions This webinar assumes the following: §  You know… •  …what Apex code is •  …how to launch the Developer Console §  You have… •  …used the Developer Console before •  …done debugging before But don’t worry, you can catch up via these resources: the conversation: #forcewebinar

  11. 11. When should I test? Write tests throughout development §  Before development §  After development §  In their own @isTest classes You should test frequently! §  During development §  Before deployment §  During deployment §  During release preview windowJoin the conversation: #forcewebinar
  12. 12. How can I run tests on my code? Salesforce provides several avenues for test execution §  Developer Console §  “Setup” User Interface §  Automatically during deployment §  Through the Tooling API *COMING SOON!*Join the conversation: #forcewebinar

  14. 14. Testing in “Setup” User InterfaceJoin the conversation: #forcewebinar
  15. 15. Asynchronous Test Execution Salesforce runs your tests in the background so they can be processed as resources allow. §  Asyncronous testing runs tests in no particular order §  It allows you to see status of tests as they complete §  The process is integrated into developer consoleJoin the conversation: #forcewebinar
  16. 16. Code Coverage We store the results of your testing to calculate code coverage, and show you these stored results in the developer console. §  Aggregate coverage for each class and trigger §  Coverage by each test method on each class and trigger §  CAUTION! These results are stale as soon as you change the test or the classJoin the conversation: #forcewebinar

  20. 20. Debugging with the Log Inspector §  Execution Log •  The entire transaction, line by line and more §  Source / Variables •  Current code location and variable values §  Stack •  How you got where you are •  How long each step took §  Execution Overview •  Limits •  Performance per action, per methodJoin the conversation: #forcewebinar
  21. 21. When the log is not enough…checkpoints! A checkpoint is like a breakpoint, but cloud-approved §  Heap •  Provide a view into the memory at the checkpoint §  SOQL query •  Run a SOQL query at the checkpoint §  Apex Code •  Inject a miniature apex snippet at the checkpointJoin the conversation: #forcewebinar
  22. 22. Recap §  Testing Is Important, Testing Is Easy •  Test always •  Use the Developer Console to see results and code coverage statistics §  Debugging Is Hard, Debugging Can Be Easier •  The Log Inspector provides many views into the haystack •  Use Checkpoints to see the state of the world at a critical pointJoin the conversation: #forcewebinar
