Save your changes to the server from IDE using Eclipse

By | August 28, 2015

Salesforce provides various ways for customization, out of which we use IDE plugin for Eclipse to code, compile, test, package, and deploy all from within the IDE. Recently, we upgraded Eclipse to the “Luna” version and found that whenever we make any change to class and save it, file is getting saved in local system and not to the server. We had to “Save to Server” manually every time we made changes in the code. This was earlier getting compiled automatically at server before upgrading Eclipse.

This happened because eclipse was rolled to the default settings and was not allowing to save the code to Salesforce server automatically until we manually use > Save to server.Save your changes to the server from Force 1

To enable this feature, one has to check below settings –

  1. Check the “Build Automatically” option and whenever you save the file locally Eclipse will try and save it to the server. To enable this follow below steps –
    Go to Project menu > Select “Build Automatically”.

Save your changes to the server from Force 2

  1. The second setting you need to check is whether the project is working in online mode. To make project work in online mode follow below steps –
    Right click on project > > Select Work Online.

Save your changes to the server from Force 3

After making these changes files will get saved automatically to the Salesforce server.
