I received notice of API endpoint change effective 1/1/2016. How can I know if this would affect me and what is the best way to know what all changes I have to make in my Salesforce.
So lets say I have hardcoded this www.salesforce.com in plenty of times within my code, do I need to change it everywhere manually or is there a better way?
Any help would be much appreciated !!!
