Difference Between Declarative and Programmatic Customization in the Salesforce Cloud

  • With Force.com, developers can customize declaratively or programmatically.

– Declarative customizations can be made point and click in a browser.
– Programmatic customizations are made with code.

  • Declarative customizations require an understanding of Force.com concepts, but no coding knowledge.
  • Programmatic customizations require coding skills and allow developers to extend beyond the declarative Salesforce.com capabilities

– Faster

Advantages of programmatic customizations:
Can extend the capabilities of an application beyond standard functionality
