Testing its interface and software plays a vital role in any application program, as appropriate testing improves its overall consistency. Which is why the Salesforce testing (SFDC testing) is becoming a quite popular idea in the market with each passing day as it offers a cleaner and a more intuitive user interface. It is truly a refreshing upgrade.
Developers usually perform Salesforce testing of apex classes and triggers by themselves. The test modules (for apex classes and triggers) need to be written to transfer the sandbox code to the execution.
While the testing process continues, developers must verify that a total of 75 percent is covered in their code. However, to improve the application’s consistency, the quality assurance teams should perform the functional tests.
Salesforce, what is it?
Salesforce is a CRM platform (Customer Relationship Management). As for SFDC testing, it stands as salesforce dot com, which is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider for cloud computing and social enterprises.
If we talk about what is cloud computing it is simply that instead of your computer’s hard drive, cloud storage involves storing and accessing data and programs on the web. So the cloud is just an internet metaphor.
Cloud-based computing does not need much hardware or software to enable a user to use the program. It enables companies to reduce the cost of production and to create applications within
a short period.
Since Salesforce testing also incorporates cloud services, Lets now discover the categories.
Various forms of Clouds
1. Public Cloud
On a public cloud, services are delivered over the Internet “as a service” with little to no influence of the underlying technology. More than one occupant can use the same services.
2. Private Cloud
When we come to a private cloud, it is also provided “as a service” operations and functions only. Still, it is deployed over an intranet or hosted data centre of the organisation. For a corporation or organisation providing enhanced security, this is a private product.
3. Salesforce.com or SFDC
It is much like a public cloud since they operate it on data centres on Salesforce.com and more than one tenant’s data lives on the same databases.
For its Customer Relationship(CRM) platform, Salesforce has certain services and products given below.
