Write Apex Test Classes efficiently with Tesforce
1.Why TesforceThe Test Classes are required to deploy Apex to a production environment or to be packaged and placed on Force.com AppExchange, it must provide at least 75% code coverage.
That will be a huge workload to SFDC Developers if the project(application) include a lot of Apex Classes,the cost of time to write Test Classes for them even more than to write themselves.So why cannot generate the Test Code automatically,or how can we write the test code more efficiently? We(at least me) really need a application which can generate most of code that we don’t have to write, such as Test Data Creating,can solve the potential problems of reference fields and required fields for us, and more.
Tesforce is the application I created to satisfy the needs, which is dedicated to minimize our coding work and help us to focus on the application logic.
Let me show you the basic usage of Tesforce.
2.Usage of Tesforce
Sample Test Class
2.1 New a ProjectCreate a project with your SFDC account and password.If you don’t want your password to be saved,don’t forget to off the “Save Password” checkbox.

2.4 Select an existing dataChoose any existing data as a “Data Template”,Tesforce will solve the problems such as reference fields, required fields and the others.
2.5 Make up Header and FooterNow add Apex Test Code into header tag or footer tag by necessity,such as setting parameters for ApexPages,or run an Apex Class.
2.6 Apex Code GeneratorThe Apex Code will be generated automatically in background.
2.7 Deploy Test Class to Salesforce
2.8 Run Test
Test ResultsSince it is still in beta, please do keep in mind that there may be bugs. I encourage you to send your feedback if you encounter them and also to share your ideas for what would make it even more awesome.
