  3. 3.

  4. 4. Introduction to the Project • The project mainly deals with providing web services using SalesForce.com. • Creating an account with SalesForce.com. • SalesForce.com let’s us create our own tabs with our own specifications. • It lets us create a webpage and then link it to the database. • The webpage’s are created using APEX.

  6. 6. Technologies Used • The Front end technologies that were used to create the webpage and the web services are as follows: – APEX. – HTML – XML – JavaScript. • The backend is done by linking the webpage to the database. • This helps in storing the data such as login names, email id’s of users, password generator, security questions etc.,
  7. 7. Introduction to APEX • Force.com Apex Code is a strongly-typed programming language that executes on the Force.com platform. • Apex is used to add business logic to applications, to write database triggers, and to program controllers in the user interface layer. • It has the usual array of features such as classes, interfaces, constants, class variables, and annotations. Unusually, Apex is not case sensitive. • Apex supports a number of different data types: – primitive data types such as Integer and Date – sObject types that represent persistent objects – collections and enumerations – user and system-defined Apex classes • The primitive data types include: – Blob - for storing binary data – Boolean – Date, Time and Datetime – Decimal - for representing arbitrary precession numbers, including currency – ID - the Force.com database record identifier type
  8. 8. Lessons Learned • Visual force. • Database.com • Site.com • Force.com • There is also another way of creating a website and linking it to the database. • Creating a website can be done by using SalesForce.com’s Site.com and then linking it to the SalesForce.com’s Database.com but the drawback is that this could happen only if we registered for a premium membership and would not work with the trial version.
  9. 9. Summary • Salesforce.com provides programmatic access to the organization’s information using simple, powerful, and secure application programming interfaces. • The Salesforce prebuilt applications provide powerful CRM functionality. In addition, Salesforce provides the ability to customize the prebuilt applications to fit the organization. • However, the organization may have complex business processes that are unsupported by the existing functionality. • When this is the case, the Force.com platform includes a number of ways for advanced administrators and developers to implement custom functionality. • The custom functionality includes the Web services API, Apex, and Visualforce.
