The Salesforce.com Tooling API supports the construction of a variety of custom development tools that work with Force.com applications. Its Salesforce Object Query Language’s flexibility to different metadata types allows developers to recover even the smallest bits of metadata. This ability to recover smaller metadata types is a performance enhancing feature that is well suited for building interactive apps. Developers can select either the REST or SOAP interface of the API depending on the language they are using. The API sends requests in REST or SOAP format and returns responses in JSON format.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
