Regarding Format..

If we carete a obejct in eclipse in which format it will be stored in force.com?


Hi sudh,

You must be aware that in salesforce most of the objects broadly fall in 2 categories viz:-

  • Standard / Native
  • Custom
  • Anything which a user/admin creates falls under the category of custom entity  (objects/fields). In your case since the object is being created by you irrespective of place of creation {Salesforce UI / Ecllipse interface} it falls under the category of custom entity hence it will be stored in salesforce org where custom objects are stored.

Did this answer your question? If not, let me know what didn't work, or if so, please mark it solved.

First Let me know, after creating the object in eclipse did you saved this object to Server (force.com), If yes then it will be save under custom objects section.


Setup >> Create >> objects >> 


if not saved, then that object still exists in eclipse only.
