Visualforce

Our development team has had many years of customizing the Salesforce platform using Visualforce ( for UI development ) and are happy to use your talents to bring your ideas to life.

Visualforce is the component-based user interface framework for the Force.com platform. The framework includes a tag-based markup language, similar to HTML. Each Visualforce tag corresponds to a coarse or fine-grained user interface component, such as a section of a page, or a field. Visualforce boasts about 100 built-in components, and a mechanism whereby developers can create their own components.

APEX

With over 20 years combined  experience, Charlie Sanders and Robert Talamantez ( the development team )  bring to Champagne Solutions advanced knowledge and expertise of the APEX programming language.

When you are in need of advanced custom solutions or custom plugins, APEX is the tool that will deliver the goods.

SOQL

As a long time user of SQL, Charlie Sanders and Robert Talamantez ( the development team )   are extremely familiar with SOQL, or the Salesforce Object Query Language.  Read more below on how SOQL details.

A SOQL query is the equivalent of a SELECT SQL statement and searches the org database. SOSL is a programmatic way of performing a text-based search against the search index.

Whether you use SOQL or SOSL depends on whether you know which objects or fields you want to search, plus other considerations.

Use SOQL when you know which objects the data resides in, and you want to:

  • Retrieve data from a single object or from multiple objects that are related to one another.
  • Count the number of records that meet specified criteria.
  • Sort results as part of the query.
  • Retrieve data from number, date, or checkbox fields.

Use SOSL when you don’t know which object or field the data resides in, and you want to:

  • Retrieve data for a specific term that you know exists within a field. Because SOSL can tokenize multiple terms within a field and build a search index from this, SOSL searches are faster and can return more relevant results.
  • Retrieve multiple objects and fields efficiently where the objects might or might not be related to one another.
  • Retrieve data for a particular division in an organization using the divisions feature.
  • Retrieve data that’s in Chinese, Japanese, Korean, or Thai. Morphological tokenization for CJKT terms helps ensure accurate results.
