Creating APEX Class in Salesforce

Syntax of class:

Private | public | global
“Virtual | abstract | with sharing | without sharing | (none)”
Class implements     | (none)” “extends   | (none)”
// the body of the class

To create an Apex class, go to the following path Your Name  ---> SetupàApp setup--->Develop  ---> click on Apex classes  ---> click on "New" button.

*In the editor pane, enter the following code Public class Helloworld

Click on Quicksave  ---> Saves the Apex Code, making it available to be executed  ---> it makes us add and modify code. Save  --> savers the Apex Code, but that classes the class editor and returns to the Apex classes list.

*Add the static method to the above class Now Apex class become. Publish class Helloworld {
public static void sayyou( ) { System.debug ( 'you' );

*Now add an instance method. Now the Apex class became public class Helloworld

{// class creation
Public static void sayyou () { //adding static method to the class
Public void sayMe ( ) { //adding instance method to system debug (‘Me '); the class

Calling a class Method:

We have created the "Helloworld" class follow these steps to call its methods.

  1. Execute the following code in the Developer console to call the Helloworld class's static method.

*** To call a static method, we don't have to create an instance of the class. Helloworld say you (); Open Raw log, then "You" appears in the USER-DEBUG log.

  1. Now execute the following code in Developer's Console to call the Helloworld classes instance method.

Note:- To call an instance method, we first have to create an instance of the Helloworld class.

Helloworld h= new Helloworld ( );
h.say Me ( );

Open Raw log, then "Me" appears in the USER-DEBUG log.

Public Account createAccount(String name){
Account a= new Account();
a.Name = name; insert a;
return a;
Go to the Developer console, and execute the following code
Account Creation ac = new Account Creation();
creating an instance for the above class. ac.CreateAccount('Osmania University');
