I guess this is a simple task , but since I haven't worked must on coding would need some help on how to check debug log . Currently my ask is to see if a method is being called and a map is being formed. What kind of syntax should I look in the logs?
You can user the
Developer console to debug and log some informations : https://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/apexcode/Content/apex_debugging_system_log_console.htm
You can add somme logs in your code.
-If you want to log in
APEX classes, add in your class :
system.debug('what you want to log here');
In the log tab in the Developer console, double click on the line concerned and check the debug checkbox to see your log line.
console.log('what you want to log here');
You need to use a browser debugger like Firebug for Firefox.
It's a very generic question which has no direct ansnwer. Hope below link help...Let me know if I could help to understand something in below link.
