Create a method for inserting accounts

To pass this challenge, create an Apex class that inserts a new account named after an incoming parameter. If the account is successfully inserted, the method should return the account record. If a DML exception occurs, the method should return null.
  • The Apex class must be called AccountHandler and be in the public scope
  • The Apex class must have a public static method called insertNewAccount
    • The method must accept an incoming string as a parameter, which will be used to create the Account name
    • The method must insert the account into the system and then return the record
    • The method must also accept an empty string, catch the failed DML and then return null

 

Create an Apex class that returns contacts based on incoming parameters

For this challenge, you will need to create a class that has a method accepting two strings. The method searches for contacts that have a last name matching the first string and a mailing postal code matching the second. It gets the ID and Name of those contacts and returns them.
  • The Apex class must be called ContactSearch and be in the public scope
  • The Apex class must have a public static method called searchForContacts
    • The method must accept two incoming strings as parameters
    • The method should then find any contact that has a last name matching the first string, and mailing postal code (API name: MailingPostalCode) matching the second string
    • The method should finally return a list of Contact records of type List that includes the ID and Name fields

Create an Apex class that returns both contacts and leads based on a parameter

To pass this challenge, create an Apex class that returns both contacts and leads that have first or last name matching the incoming parameter.
  • The Apex class must be called ContactAndLeadSearch and be in the public scope
  • The Apex class must have a public static method called searchContactsAndLeads
    • The method must accept an incoming string as a parameter
    • The method should then find any contact or lead that matches the string as part of either the first or last name
    • The method should finally use a return type of List<List< SObject>>
  • NOTE: Because SOSL indexes data for searching, you must create a Contact record and Lead record before checking this challenge. Both records must have the last name Smith. The challenge uses these records for the SOSL search
