Jan 30

Welcome to my monthly “Things I didn’t know that I know now” review. Since I started this blog I have been keeping track of every word, process and acronym that I have ran into and not known. I am hoping that as time goes on, this list will keep getting shorter and shorter. Who am I kidding – the list will keep growing, technology moves so fast and I think that acronyms spawn a minimum of 3 other and new acronyms!

Here is my list for January:

  • SOQLSalesforce Object Query Language – Similar to Structured Query Language (SQL) – used with the Force.com IDE, Apex and Visualforce and it helps to know relationships between objects
  • MVCModel View Controller – In Salesforce the model is the database, or data model, the view would be a page and Visualforce, the controller manages the interactions between the view and the model
  • JDBCJava Database Connectivity -This is the API to the Java language. This means that you can use Java to connect independent databases (it is oriented towards relational databases). This is what would be used to take Salesforce.com and other databases for reporting and integration among other things.
  • AJAXAsynchronous JavaScript and XML – a group of techniques that are used on the client side to develop interactive web applications. This can be used on a Visualforce page because Apex can also handle JavaScript and markup languages.
