The debugger is a new feature coming down the pipes. A few months ago, a local salesforce.com developer demonstrated this feature on a development salesforce.com stack running on a Mac (they were accessing Salesforce on https://localhost/). In the demonstration, they set breakpoints in the IDE, triggered a request in the browser, and showed us how we could ...

With Winter 16 (API 35), the Force.com IDE began providing "run configurations for Apex tests, with configurable logging levels". See the Force.com IDE Release Notes for details on this feature and how to configure them. Once you have them configured, you press a green arrow in the menu panel above to run your selected test class (outlined in red). See ...

Try to cancel the save, refresh the console, or both. To cancel the save, right click on the tab and click "Cancel Save". You can also click on the "Progress" tab on the bottom and click "Cancel All Deployments". The Progress tab gives you information on the status of the deploy, but if you are getting that error, it is probably because the save is never ...

The latest version of the Force.com IDE connects to API36, but most orgs are still on API 35. Uninstall the current version of the Force.com IDE in eclipse (look at the help/about menu for the about window that shows for installed software and lets you uninstall selected packages), then when you go to add new software uncheck the "show only latest versions" ...

I found a workaround for this issue: Instead of using the UI to Add/Remove Metadata Components you can do that editing the file /src/package.xml If you use defaults, it looks like this: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?> <Package xmlns="http://soap.sforce.com/2006/04/metadata"> <types> <members>*</...

I'm the product manager for platform developer tools. We're aware of the Eclipse Che project and we like the technology behind it. Launching a trusted product in our data centers with remote workspaces for 100,000+ simultaneous users is a non trivial engineering effort. We're scoping various options that would meet our goal of providing everyone on platform ...

Check that the sharing model org wide defaults are the same in your source and target orgs. By default it's set to private sharing model. The developer may have set it to a public sharing model and you'd need to do that through Setup UI in the new org you want to deploy to. https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.securityImplGuide.meta/...

After that, right-click on the ...

Since there's been a major push for Lightning, there's been a major lag with the Force.com IDE. You could fork the core and add 41.0 support, or even get on the dev branch if you wanted to get a peek at the upcoming version, or you might try the Force.com IDE 2, which supports DX, meaning that you can naturally create v41 items, because DX provides the ...

This issue is because Salesforce has disabled TLS 1.0 encryption. After June 25, 2016, at 9:30 AM PDT (16:30 UTC), all sandbox orgs -- whether existing, refreshed, or new -- will have TLS 1.0 automatically disabled and will require TLS 1.1 or later in HTTPS connections to or from the sandbox org. For more information on Salesforce disabling TLS 1.0 refer - ...

When you delete an Apex Class or Trigger is there a difference between doing it through an IDE vs a destructiveChanges.xml? Typically, no. They both follow the same rules of engagement. Many IDEs actually do use destructiveChanges.xml under the hood anyways, although some instead use the Tooling API or Salesforce DX (when available). Those IDEs still have ...

The problem is that there's no real guaranteed way to prevent overwrites, although the Force.com IDE does try to prevent this by performing a synchronization first. The problem here is that synchronization has a window where updates can be missed, between the synchronization and update process. Even the best synchronization tools are pretty basic, so there's ...

Salesforce has made clear that their direction for future improvement and development of their toolchain is Salesforce DX. That doesn't mean, however, that you cannot use the more traditional Salesforce toolchain through a variety of avenues. It's probably useful to make a distinction in terminology here. The sfdx command line tool is one piece, and the Dev ...

Starting out now, of the free options, I would go for Salesforce Extensions for VS Code. Uses push/pull with scratch orgs, good (local) language parsing and syntax highlighting, nice test running, good Git support out of the box. Some quotes from the link: As I mentioned, the Salesforce Extensions for VS Code are the future of Salesforce development. ...

Looks like the problem is in Eclipse working with Force.com IDE v38.0. I tried going back to v37.0 and it works fine. First remove v38.0 (via Help->Installation Details). You can then download version 37.0 from https://developer.salesforce.com/media/force-ide/eclipse45 (uncheck "Show Only Latest Versions").

We will not add this to Force.com IDE 2. Instead, we are focusing on the language services for Apex, Visualforce, and Lightning, and our extension for Visual Studio Code.

An IDE is arguably the easiest way to edit fields. Simply pull down the object, edit all the labels, then save the changes. You can do this in MavensMate, Force.com IDE, and others that support the object folder (most, if not all, do). To delete fields, you need a destructive tool. My tool of choice is the Ant Toolkit or the Workbench. Simply create a "...

Can we use metadata format (src folder) with vscode, if yes than how? You can, but that means dealing with a package.xml and stuff that you've been dealing with, and using terminal commands or writing your own extension(s). VS Code is an IDE, but depends on SFDX for its commands, which do not all have an GUI option yet. So, you could develop in src, but you'...

Force.com IDE is very good. Especially you will feel right at home if you are a previous user of eclipse for some other programming language. But there is a really cool light weight IDE for development in force.com. Try mavensmate plugin for sublime. I was using developer console and moved to mavensmate. Now will never go back.

The easiest way to find out which version is supported is to check it on the Force.com Plugin page: https://developer.salesforce.com/page/Force.com_IDE_Installation Prerequisites (for the 26 August 2014) Java SE Development Kit (JDK), Runtime Environment 7 —the plug-in will fail to load if you don't have the full Java 7 JDK (note: the full JDK is ...

I'm the product manager for Force.com IDE. To create files within a bundle, there are no templates at the moment. While in the bundle folder, right click New > File. Then enter a name like Charts.auradoc. In a future release or patch, we may change the new bundles to include all file types so this is more intuitive. These are the acceptable file types: ...

Yes, it can be deployed via the Metadata API using the CustomField metadata type.

Harry and Sally should not be sharing a development org. They should each have their own development org, so that they can each pull in just their own changes, and merge those changes to a branches that will ultimately be used to build other orgs downstream (qa, uat, and production). Sharing a development org between developers is error-prone, and will ...

This happens if you (like me) are not reading the instructions carefully ;-) As a prerequisite you need to download and install Salesforce CLI like stated here Salesforce CLI Each Force.com IDE 2 version depends on a matched version of the Salesforce CLI.

The ability to integrate the SFDX VS Code extension with traditional sandboxes and dev orgs was just announced (in Preview mode). More info here I've got this up and running now, but am still looking for a way to get auto-push to sandbox on save, like the current MavensMate workflow. UPDATE: To log in to a sandbox, update the .sfdx/sfdx-project.json file ...
