Hi all,


Wondered where would be the best place to test SOQL queries? I need to run some simple queries such as below [Select u.Contact.AccountId From User u where id = :uid and contactid != null]; and need to see the return results...


Many thanks, 

Use the Apex Explorer tool.  You can download it here:

There is also a schema browser and query builder/tester in the IDE.


If you are a Mac user then the SOQLXplorer does the job and even has a schema visualizer.

You can also make use of  Eclipse which provides u to test your SOQL queries.

Thank you all for your replies.
