Clearer Apex Commands
Let’s be honest. The best part of writing tests is seeing them pass. And all too often, the scariest part of running tests is looking through the code coverage numbers. First, you need to find the values you’re searching for and once you do — what do they really mean?
We’re excited to share that over the course of the past few months, we’ve been hard at work revamping your entire Apex experience in the CLI. While the rest of the commands we’ve rolled out were a behind-the-scenes transition for most of you, we are most thrilled about what’s soon to come for the
sfdx force:apex:test:run and
sfdx force:apex:test:report commands! Our updates will bring you accurate code coverage numbers, cleaned-up results, and a new flag to see detailed coverage information. We’ll also give you a preview of more (potentially breaking!) changes to come down the line.
Find Problems Faster with the Apex Log Analyzer
When trying to diagnose an issue, Apex logs are a rich source of information. A debug log can record database operations, system processes, code executing in managed packages, and errors that occur when executing a transaction or running unit tests. However, consuming logs in their raw format can burn some calories before you can understand and pin down the issue.
FinancialForce built a tool to help their internal development team parse logs faster, and are generously making it available to all. This tool is built as an extension, so you can access it right in Visual Studio Code. Let’s check out some of what you can do with this new extension.
