Building Dynamic Queries in Apex

Aug 2, 2016 · Atlanta, United States of America

This month our own Bryan from MapAnything will be our guest presenter.

This session will focus on how to use the Salesforce Schema class to build dynamic queries in Apex.

Using the built in Schema describe methods we can retrieve information about sObjects such as field names, labels, picklist values, record types and more. This allows us the flexibility to construct SOQL strings, on the fly at runtime in Apex. These dynamically created strings can then be used to query objects without the need to hardcode any names of fields or objects. Bryan will take us through the process of using the classes and methods to produce these types of queries, and then show how he uses JSON in a long text area to save data or queries for use at a later time.

As always, snacks and drinks will be provided courtesy of Capgemini, our partner and sponsor.

Hope to see everyone for this in depth review of dynamic queries.

Keep calm, and use the Force
