While losing code is a bummer, I always say that when life throws you lost code you hand life back new refactored code.

One of the most eagerly awaited Winter '13 features, at least for developers, has been the ability to test Apex callouts. In this blog entry, I look at how you can mock up callout responses using data in static resources.

RemoteTK offers similar functionality to forcetk.js, without consuming API calls.
Apex REST, recently enhanced in Spring ’12, makes it easy for you to create custom RESTful Web services using Apex. In this challenge, we’d like you to show off some of the cool custom APIs that you’ve developed with Apex REST and teach the community how to harness the full power of Apex REST. Head […]
One of the main reasons to adopt REST is the simplicity of the API, compared to the juggling of formats required to send and receive SOAP messages. We’ve had a long history of creating toolkits and libraries to ease the burden of using SOAP as a transport – so much so that when I first […]
The Chatter REST API is GA in Winter '12. Here is a highlight of some of the recent changes and additions.
We are excited to announce the availability of the new Force.com and Database.com Ruby gem, with full source available in Github. This gem is a great example of how an open source project started way back in 2005, has evolved over time thanks to the active Ruby and Force.com community. The gem, written to leverage the Force.com […]
