How to crate Apex classes

Hi all


I am new in

and want to create apex in my admin a/c...

There is no option for creating new apex classes....


Do you have a Developer Edition account? If not, you can get one here for free:


I recommend checking out these tutorials to get you started:





You cannot directly create Apex classes in a Production instance (NA 0 through 7). You will first need to create a sandbox (developer or full) and then develop your apex class there and then write test methods and ensure your apex class has atleast 75% test coverage before you can deploy the apex class to production. As Ryan suggest go through the workbook that talks about the lifecycle for an apex based applicatoin.


Ya as others have pointed out to you , u cannot create Apex classes  in Production, please do sign up for a developer org , which free and has most of the features only tthe storage space is a limiting factor.

Then once you are through with the development , you have to ensure all your trigger and classes have appropriate coverage, and yes please do use ecllipse IDE for development purposes , it will be very helpful.

Also for help with coding do make use of the example given in the Apex documentation part of salesforce.
