Updated Developer Documentation

Just echoing the post from the ADN Blog.

  • The 8.0 API documentation was updated and posted. (link)
  • The AJAX Toolkit will be out of beta with Winter 07 and the documentation was posted (link). Usage of the beta toolkit will still work, but changing to the production toolkit will provide better performance and will allow you to take advantage of new enhancements as they come out.
  • Tech Note “What’s New in Apex Web Services API Winter ’07” (link) provides an overview of the API changes and considerations in moving your integrations to the 8.0 API.

If you only care to follow 1 link, the main Documents page on ADN is the place to look.

3-part series about on the O’Reilly Network

Tony Stubblebine just posted part 2 of his 3-part series on how to build and distribute applications on’s AppExchange. The series is being published on the O’Reilly Network. Links have been permanently added to my blog sidebar, but here they are again:

Part 1 of 3 – An Introduction to’s AppExchange: Tony lays out the basic information that any developer should know to get started. This article provides some context and points to how a developer can get their hands on a free Developer Edition account.

Part 2 of 3 – Using the API: Tony explains how the Salesforce API works by creating a PERL script that automatically creates Leads for every comment posted on a blog. This is a well-rounded example because it explains how to use the API and also how it impacts the back-end (inside Salesforce).

Part 3 of 3 – Packaging for’s AppExchange: Tony continues building the blog-to-lead application by walking through the process of packaging and uploading to the Salesforce AppExchange.
