SoqlXplorer

Here, I would like to tell you about a new tool I have been using these days for enhanced querying through all the objects in the environment.

Steps to use this tool and make your querying quick through any field and condition.

Link to download the tool:

https://www.pocketsoap.com/osx/soqlx/

Step 1:

Login into the Sandbox that you would like to query on objects

After logging in, To the left hand side we can see all the objects. Need to double click on the object we want and we can see all the fields present in the object.

As per our requirement, we should enhance the query and add the conditions to get the results on the fields by clicking on query at the bottom.

Hope this tool helps in improving the querying time and checking the values on the fields.

Algorithm to generate the unique id in salesforce using Apex

There might be scenarios where we as a developer needs to generate random unique ID’s to be used for external integrations in Apex.

Here is a simple method which generates the unique code everytime.


public static String getUUID()
{
        Blob b = Crypto.GenerateAESKey(128);
        String h = EncodingUtil.ConvertTohex(b);
        String guid = h.SubString(0,8)+ '-' + h.SubString(8,12) + '-' + h.SubString(12,16) + '-' + h.SubString(16,20) + '-' + h.substring(20);
        system.debug(guid);
        return guid;
    }
