Salesforce System Error: 1148877694-2467 (681892207) (681892207) when using JSON generator class in apex

Today i encountered a very interesting error when i was using JSON generator .The error said FATAL_ERROR System.UnexpectedException: Salesforce System Error: 1148877694-2467 (681892207) (681892207).

Looking into the error my first thing was to run through my code again and again .I referred the following documents on JSON generator class 

The code in my eyes look pretty simple and here is the exact snippet that was throwing the exception

JSONGenerator gen = JSON.createGenerator(true);
gen.writeNumberField('abc', 1.21);
gen.writeStringField('def', 'xyz');
String pretty = gen.getAsString();//This statement use at the end only .It ends the JSON 
System.debug('STRING JSON'+pretty);
gen.writeStringField('def', 'xyz');

After the line 6 (where i am printing the log )i have the following statement in my debug log 13:24:03:048 FATAL_ERROR System.UnexpectedException: Salesforce System Error: 1148877694-2467 (681892207) (681892207)

I decided to read the document again and discovered that the when i use the method getAsString method of JSON generator class the apex automatically closes the JSON and hence attempting to start writing the Object after closing generates an error .

Though this is simple issue but the error message is not caught properly in the salesforce backend .

So the conclusion is always using getAsString of JSON generator class should be practiced .

Never use it even for the debug statements.

This is one of the rare cases where error message is misleading.Hope this helps for people trying to google and find why the error is occuring when using JSON generator.

Just commmenting Line 5 and line 6 will resolve the issue.
Happy Coding !

Invoking Apex Callout From Process Builder

Process builder is GA in Spring 15 and one of the queries I came across was around how to invoke apex callouts from Process builder .

Before process builder came we had two common approaches of calling webservice 

1)We have outbound messages as one of the Actions for workflows.This works if other party implements the WSDL that is generated once Outbound messaging is defined with appropriate end point .

2)Most of times future method invoked through triggers allowed to do apex callouts and invoke external web service provided the future method is annotated with @future(callout=true).This provides lot of flexibility and one of the best approaches .

3)Flow triggers was in BETA and this was also one of the ways we could invoke callouts provided the Flow implements process plugin .To understand in detail how to implement process plugin refer to the below example

The purpose of this blogpost is to demonstrate the new possibility of invoking apex callout through Process Builder

Opening Modal Using Lightning Component Framework of SFDC

One of my friend from India threw a challenge .The challenge was to open a modal by using latest and greatest lightning components framework and modals design from SLDS .For the love of community I thought of sharing the entire code base that I did .

So here we start ..

Business Use Case - Need a handy SalesLeader board component that can be used to display the Sales revenue generated by each sales rep for current year in the order of decreasing total revenue .On click of the tile ,we will show detail opportunity list aggregating the revenue .

The component can be dragged in lightning design experience or in App builder lightning Page .

Writing Test Classes For Apex Rest Service

I came across a question in a developer community on how to write Unit Test Classes for the Rest API service for POST HTTP calls

Unit Test Classes for REST API following link is very useful and inspired by this jeff had an article on his blog on how to write the test method for same .

Here is the Jeff Blog Link Test Class for REST API(Good reference for GET Rest Services)

In one of my previous blog post i demonstrated how to use native parsing technique for Rest api for User Defined Type
I wrote the Test class for the same and this post is helpful for all those searching for how to write test classes for apex rest service annotated with POST Call
Here is the Rest Service Class for which i attempted the test class
