Dynamic Apex in Salesforce

You can fetch all sobject and their field information in apex by using describe methods. Apex gives 2 data types for sobject and field information.
  1. Token: A lightweight, serializable reference to an sObject or a field that is validated at compile time.
  2. Describe Result: It contains all the describe information about sobject and fields. Describe result objects are not serializable, and are validated at runtime.
It is easy to move from a token to its describe result, and vice versa. Both sObject and field tokens have the method getDescribe which returns the describe result for that token.
On the describe result, the getSObjectType and getSObjectField methods return the tokens for sObject and field, respectively.

Finding All object in Organization

Schema getGlobalDescribe method returns a map that represents the relationship between all sObject names (keys) to sObject tokens (values).
For example:
Map<String, Schema.SObjectType> schemaMapOfOrg = Schema.getGlobalDescribe();
The map has the following characteristics:
  • It is dynamic, that is, it is generated at runtime on the sObjects currently available for the organization, based on permissions.
  • The sObject names are case insensitive. 
  • The keys use namespaces as required. The keys reflect whether the sObject is a custom object.
Creating sObjects Dynamically

If we need to create contact record dynamically, then use below code:
String typeName='Contact';
Schema.SObjectType objToken = Schema.getGlobalDescribe().get(typeName);
sobject son= objToken.newSObject();
insert son;

  3. I attempted IT exams many times but could not find as suitable and authentic study material as Identity-and-Access-Management-Designer Dumps. I grabbed all the required knowledge quickly and confidently attempted for the final test. After completing preparation from Identity-and-Access-Management-Designer Dumps I used online practice test for enhancement of confidence and familiarity to real exam settings.

  4. I am thankful for the kindness and patience that was showed by the experts at www.exam4lead.com while answering my queries. I also appreciate the effort put on IDENTITY-AND-ACCESS-MANAGEMENT-DESIGNER DUMPS because this stuff helped me a lot during my preparation. I studied this guide thoroughly and understood all the concepts. It was only because of this handy material that I was able to answer all the questions in the final test. IDENTITY-AND-ACCESS-MANAGEMENT-DESIGNER EXAM DUMPS material was fully relevant and comprehensive. I didn’t feel any need to consult anywhere further. One more thing that was helpful for me was its PDF form.
