The freeware tool for Microsoft developers and Salesforce administrators.
We built the FuseIT SFDC Explorer for internal use while developing our S4S and G4S connectors and found it so useful we made it a free download. You can also click on the download link to access an online tool for generating Apex from your own WSDLs. The Explorer runs on Microsoft Operating Systems.
For customers using our integrations, we recommend using the Explorer as an easy way to verify their Salesforce access and understand the underlying object model and processes. There is also a code generation tool that uses a T4 template to create strongly typed C#.NET classes (with associated service and data source classes) from custom and standard Salesforce objects.
The Explorer uses the Salesforce Partner API to provide the following:
You need to login using Salesforce credentials to use the FuseIT SFDC Explorer. See the help documentation for further details.
This tab allows you to run SOQL queries against the Salesforce.com instance. The results of the SOQL query may be exported to an Excel CSV file by clicking the icon.
This tab allows you to view object relationships. Use the Database Schema section to choose the required object.
This tab lets you find the object associated with a Salesforce ID.
This tab allows you to run Apex tests. Tests can be run synchronously or asynchronously. The average code coverage for the selected tests is displayed along with what tests have passed and failed. Additionally the test log is can be viewed for the selected tests.
Apex Tests Queued shows the currently queued tests when the test are running asynchronously.
Allows users to view the Apex logs for the Salesforce.com instance.
Note that the logs can be filtered by ticking the statement types in the Apex Log box on the bottom-left.
You may need to backup Salesforce data at daily, weekly or monthly intervals. Interestingly, the Salesforce Data Export feature does not localize Salesforce records after an export. They are simply zipped and need to be manually downloaded to a local server. The FuseIT SFDC Data Export tool can automate this.
The FuseIT SFDC data export functionality has GUI and command line options. Both are able to iterate through a completed export (see Salesforce > Data Management > Data Export) and copy the zip selections to your local server hard drive.
The FuseIT.G4S.DataExportConsole.exe application can be executed directly from the command prompt (via cmd window) or you can embed the command line in a script file - see details.
Salesforce acknowledges an issue with some zip files. One customer, downloading 400 files, had been impacted.
From this tab users can run apex statements anonymously. The output of these statements is also displayed.
The WSDL to Apex control in the FuseIT SFDC Explorer helps developers deal with many of the problems faced when generating Apex classes from a WSDL using Salesforce’s WSDL2Apex tool.
The FuseIT tool allows developers to select only the Apex methods needed, generate these Apex classes, then publish the classes directly into a Salesforce Org via the Tooling API.
See the example beside of Apex classes generated for the Salesforce Partner WSDL in FuseIT SFDC Explorer.
The WSDL parsing features in SFDC Explorer are:
The FuseIT WSDL to Apex utility resolves a number of error messages described by the "Error parsing WSDL with Salesforce Wsdl2Apex" message.
