  • Do you mean records last modified over the last 15 minutes i.e. ones from 0 mins ago or 5 mins ago or 7 mins ago or 15 mins ago but not ones modified before that? All SObjects have a LastModifiedDate field (that is a UTC datetime so you need to consider timezones) that you can include in the where clause of your query together with a datetime constant that your calling code creates - see e.g. blogforce9.blogspot.ie/2012/05/….

Here is some Java to create the SOQL for the query as I understand it where you want any records modified in the last 15 minutes:

int minutes = 15;
Date date = new Date(System.currentTimeMillis() - minutes * 60 * 1000);
DateFormat df = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd\'T\'HH:mm:ss\'Z\'");
String soqlDate = df.format(date);
String soql = ""
        + " select Id, Quantity__c, Price__c"
        + " from Quote__c"
        + " where LastModifiedDate >= " + soqlDate
// ... then make web service call using the SOQL

Most of the messing around is to get the "15 minutes ago" date/time into the right format and timezone.

  • shall i use this query for SOAP APi Custom Webservice

  • @Sathya I was assuming that you didn't want to do that hence doing the date logic at the client side so one of the standard SOQL APIs could be used. If you create a custom webservice you can do the calculation there in Apex instead.
