Updated Force.com IDE Fork

My improved Force.com IDE fork

I would argue it is rare that re-inventing the wheel is the better choice compared to just improving an existing solution - I'm looking at you Salesforce Extensions for VS Code - and so since Salesforce opened sourced their Force.com IDE I have been updating it to suit my needs, mostly to speedup development:

  • WSDL version 42
  • Ability to 'Disable 'Save to Server' dirty resource check'
  • Ability to 'Disable 'Save to Server' synchronize check'
  • Ability to 'Disable 'Save to Server' user confirmation check'

Update Site and Public Repo

Today a co-worker needed to get setup with SF development and so I have officially created a public repo and an update site for my version, just add the the below URL to your 'Help > Install New Software...' to get your copy.

Duplicate value found: duplicates value on record with id: <unknown>.

System.DmlException: Insert failed. First exception on row 0; first error: DUPLICATE_VALUE, duplicate value found: <unknown> duplicates value on record with id: <unknown>.The above error is triggered in the database layer and caused by a trigger or workflow outside of your main code of block that is bubbling this exception. This is rather difficult to track down especially if you are unfamiliar with the code, I am sharing my procedure in the hopes this saves you time - if you find this helpful drop me a line or follow me on twitter @danielsokolows. This error is caused by unique field constraint on the object, so the first step is to examine the object and locate the API names of all unique fieds. You can do this through SF direclty 'Setup < Customize &lt <object being inserted> &lt Fields' or by downloading the `src/objects` metadata information and searching for <unique>; I preffer the latter and actually download ALL matadata information f…

Softeher 'Error occurred. (Error code: 2)' sollution

Protocol error occurred. Error was returned from the destination server.The Softether server by default to run on port 443, if you server also hosts normal https then 443 is already taken and so Softether can't bind to it. When you run `vpncmd` it attempts to connect, find an active port, but of course fails with 'Protocol error occurred. Error was returned from the destination server.' because it's not actually connecting to the vpn server. By default Softether also listens on 992, 1194, and 5555 so the sollution is to modify specify `localhost:5555` when executing the `vpncmnd`. If this has helped you feel free to comment or follow me on twitter @danielsokolows.
