I found code that I would like to use in my Dev Org, but I don't know how to. Can anyone offer guidance on implementing this code?


Here's a link to the code that I would like to implement in my Developer Edition org. The code is used to offer a combination of B2B and B2C in the same org without using person accounts.

Any guidance would be appreciated, thanks!

EDIT: To clarify, I've so far just copied and pasted the code into the proper place (class, trigger, page, etc.) and created the fields manually, but I feel like I'm missing a better way to be doing this.

UPDATE: Copying and pasting each code item in seems to have worked, in addition to a few manual changes indicated in the readme, however, it still refers to 'Downloading the Code', which makes me feel like there is a better way to do this than just copying and pasting all of the code over. Any idea what this is referring to?

I would use the IDE to manage this code. IDE

Possible Suggestion/Solution #2

As mentioned by DavinC, the IDE is the most common way of handling code deployments, although there is also a command line tool called ant that salesforce provides a toolkit for using in deployments.

The IDE however is far friendlier to non-developers, although it's still a rather large and complex peice of software.

If I wanted to deploy that source to my org I'd download the whole thing, from the root level and then load the project into the IDE. From there the IDE has a deploy menu that can be used to push all of the data at once to your org.

For small projects it can be faster to copy/paste as you've done but once you start working with large projects that include dozens of classes or workflows it quickly becomes more efficient to invest in learning the IDE.
