Use DML to Save sObjects to the Database

Create a Recruiting Account sObject and save it to the database. 

  1. In the Developer Console, open the Execute Anonymous window.
  2. Replace the existing code with this code:
    //From the Account class, instantiate an object named acct
    Account acct = new Account();
    //Set the name attribute of the acct object to Recruiting acct.name='Recruiting';
    //Use DML to save the acct object to the database Database.insert(acct);
    System.debug('A new account named ' + acct.name + ' was added ');
  3. Verify that Open Log is selected and then click Execute. The execution log opens.
  4. Select Debug Only.
  5. Review the debug message and then close the log.

Within the createContact method, create a Contact sObject, populate its attributes, add it to the conList, and save the list to the database.

  1. In the CreateContactFromCan class, replace the existing code with this code:
    public with sharing class CreateContactFromCan {
    //Declare a method that returns void and accepts a Candidate list named candsFromTrigger public static void createContact (List<Candidate__c> candsFromTrigger){
    //Instantiate a Contact list named conList List<Contact> conList = new List<Contact>();
    //Declare a list FOR loop that uses an iteration variable named currentCandidate //to loop through the candsFromTrigger list for(Candidate__c currentCandidate:candsFromTrigger){
    //Create a Contact and add it to conList //Set the FirstName, LastName, and Email attributes to match the //corresponding attributes of the currentCandidate object (First_Name__c, //Last_Name__c, and Email__c) conList.add(new Contact ( AccountId = conList[0].id, FirstName = currentCandidate.First_Name__c, LastName = currentCandidate.Last_Name__c, Email = currentCandidate.Email__c) ); }
    //Save conList to the database Database.insert(conList); } }
  2. Save the CreateContactFromCan class.
