Challenge Overview

Challenge Overview

Problem Statement: Web Service and Test Automation

Now all the customers can receive in-time corona cases report in the email, they are feeling warm from DreamHouse. The management teams also like the email service, and they want you to expose it as an HTTP Web Service with REST APIs.

Also, as a good developer, you test your code to ensure that it's bulletproof before deploying it to production. So you need to write unit tests for all the existing code and ensure the coverage is 100%.

Technology Stack

In all the three Skill Builder competitions, you need to develop the app by Visual Studio Code with Salesforce Extension Pack, and you need to create a Salesforce project by the Salesforce CLI. You cannot just write the code in the Developer Console of your Org.

All the code should be deployed to a Scratch Org, and you need to include the link to the Scratch Org, username and password in your submission.

You will need to install the DreamHouse app into your Scratch Org, and all the following development will be based on it.
