In today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape, businesses frequently opt for platform-based solutions to develop their applications. Salesforce, with its robust, feature-rich environment, stands out as a popular choice. However, ensuring the quality and functionality of applications customized on such platforms requires a distinct approach to testing. Unlike traditional software testing, where the focus is often on every layer of the technology stack, testing applications developed on platforms like Salesforce shifts the emphasis to the interplay between the platform’s native capabilities and the bespoke customizations.

Understanding Platform Dynamics

The foremost step in this testing process is recognizing the inherent stability and reliability of the Salesforce platform. The responsibility of the QA team, thus, pivots to concentrating on the custom components – such as custom objects, fields, Apex classes, Visualforce pages, Lightning components, and the specific business logic implemented. This approach entails a deep dive into how these custom elements integrate with Salesforce’s standard functionalities, ensuring they align seamlessly with business processes and objectives.
