Who This Book Is For If you are a competent developer with working knowledge of Apex, and now want to deep dive into the world of Apex design patterns to optimize the application performance, then this book is for you. Prior knowledge of Salesforce and Force.com platform is recommended. What You Will Learn Apply OOPs principal in Apex to design a robust and efficient solution to address various facets to a business problem Get to grips with the benefits and applicability of using different design patterns in Apex Solve problems while instantiating, structuring and giving dynamic behavior to Apex classes Understand the implementation of creational, structural, behavioral, concurrency and anti-patterns in your application Follow the Apex best practices to resolve governor limit issues Get clued up about the Inheritance, abstract classes, polymorphism in Apex to deal with the object mechanism Master various design patterns and determine the best out of them Explore the anti patterns that could not be applied to Apex and their appropriate solutions In Detail Apex is an on-demand programming language providing a complete set of features for building business applications – including data models and objects to manage data. Apex being a proprietor programming language from Salesforce to be worked with multi tenant environment is a lot different than traditional OOPs languages like Java and C#. It acts as a workflow engine for managing collaboration of the data between users, a user interface model to handle forms and other interactions, and a SOAP API for programmatic access and integration. Apex Design Patterns gives you an insight to several problematic situations that can arise while developing on Force.com platform and the usage of Design patterns to solve them. Packed with real life examples, it gives you a walkthrough from learning design patterns that Apex can offer us, to implementing the appropriate ones in your own application. Furthermore, we learn about the creational patterns that deal with object creation mechanism and structural patterns that helps to identify the relationship between entities. Also, the behavioural and concurrency patterns are put forward explaining the communication between objects and multi-threaded programming paradigm respectively. We later on, deal with the issues regarding structuring of classes, instantiating or how to give a dynamic behaviour at a runtime, with the help of anti-patterns. We learn the basic OOPs principal in polymorphic and modular way to enhance its capability. Also, best practices of writing Apex code are explained to differentiate between the implementation of appropriate patterns. This book will also explain some unique patterns that could be applied to get around governor limits. By the end of this book, you will be a maestro in developing your applications on Force.com for Salesforce Style and approach This book is a step-by-step guide, complete with well-tested programs and real world situations to solve your common occurring problems in Apex design by using the anti-patterns.

Familiarity with other real-time streaming frameworks is not required, but some practical experience with other big data processing utilities might be helpful. What You Will Learn Put together a functioning Apex application from scratch Scale an Apex application and configure it for optimal performance Understand how to deal with failures via the fault tolerance features of the platform Use Apex via other frameworks such as Beam Understand the DevOps implications of deploying Apex In Detail Apache Apex is a next-generation stream processing framework designed to operate on data at large scale, with minimum latency, maximum reliability, and strict correctness guarantees. Half of the book consists of Apex applications, showing you key aspects of data processing pipelines such as connectors for sources and sinks, and common data transformations. The other half of the book is evenly split into explaining the Apex framework, and tuning, testing, and scaling Apex applications. Much of our economic world depends on growing streams of data, such as social media feeds, financial records, data from mobile devices, sensors and machines (the Internet of Things - IoT). The projects in the book show how to process such streams to gain valuable, timely, and actionable insights. Traditional use cases, such as ETL, that currently consume a significant chunk of data engineering resources are also covered. The final chapter shows you future possibilities emerging in the streaming space, and how Apache Apex can contribute to it. Style and approach This book is divided into two major parts: first it explains what Apex is, what its relevant parts are, and how to write well-built Apex applications. The second part is entirely application-driven, walking you through Apex applications of increasing complexity.
