With Salesforce’s giant annual conference, Dreamforce, fast approaching in early October, now’s the time to brush up on their proprietary programming language, Apex. As a strongly typed, object-oriented programming language, Apex allows developers to execute flow and transaction control statements on the Force.com platform server while performing calls to the Force.com API.

More about the Apex Language:
Apex is Salesforce’s proprietary programming language used to build applications to manage data and processes on the Force.com framework. Apex is the world’s first “on-demand programming language,” enabling thousands of Salesforce customers, partners, and Salesforce’s in-house developers to develop applications that add business logic to system events and Visualforce pages. For the 2,500+ applications living on the AppExchange, the thousands of organizations using their services, and the countless organizations developing in Apex code for internal facing applications, application security is a major concern. Apex applications face potential threats from cross site scripting (XSS), SOQL and SOSL injections, frame spoofing and more.
