Facebook Toolkit

We’re going to be extending the current postings for the Force for Facebook Toolkit with a few sample postings. First, I’m going to just reiterate some of the steps in the installation process.

After you’ve installed the toolkit, identify an existing project (with nature) in your Eclipse environment where’d you like the toolkit to be added. Change your perspective to the SVN Repository Exploring perspective. Select Export from the context menu of the src folder in the Force4Facebook trunk.

Click the Browse button in the dialog window that opens and navigate to the project’s main directory in your Eclipse folder (child directory of Workspace, usually). Click the Choose button. Here’s the underwhelming part. Eclipse appears to do absolutely nothing here. The screen just returns to the default SVN perspective. However, in the background, your source files were copied to the project directory and the nature of the project auto-saved them back to your SFDC org (assuming it’s an org that allows that). Switch perspectives back to to verify that the classes are present. Look for more tips and tricks on the Force for Facebook toolkit in future posts.
