I am fairly new in Salesforce, exposed to developer edition only. I would like to know - whether there is any code coverage requirement for an APEX class to be used? I am aware that in Enterprise edition, the requirement is 75%. But I do not know the limit for Developer edition.

I ask because - I have written a Class and when I copy the code and paste in Developer Console > Debug > Open Execute anonymous window, I get expected results. However, when I call the apex class from VisualForce component, I am not getting desired result. The class is supposed to return the Name of a borrower of a book based on given book name. But the borrower's name is returned as blank when called from VF component.

Would appreciate if someone can tell me whether I need to write a test class and get the code coverage to get it working. Thanks.


Code coverage has nothing to do with the functionality of your code.

The scenario you describe can only be a result of your code.

The code coverage is a tool for understand how much of your code is covered by tests. It does not change the behaviour of your code.

    @Guha I'd suggest closing this question (i.e. marking it as answered) and starting a new question. The issue will be completely different to this question. – Nick Cook Oct 28 '16 at 3:54

Code coverage comes into picture when deploying to a production organization. There seems to some problem with your code. Functionality of your doesn't depend on the code coverage.
