You really wouldn't have a user click a separate button or "authenticate in the background" as you're describing here. With SSO, a user could log into your application, navigate to Salesforce and not be asked to login again. Your application's user store (LDAP, Active Directory, etc) would act as the Identity Provider (IDP) and Salesforce SSO settings would be configured to use that IDP. Here are a few resources to get you on your way;
I wrote this code quite a while ago, so it doesn't follow some of the best practices I've learned since. It doesn't scale and will hit some Governor limits on Accounts with large volumes of Cases/Contacts. It also doesn't accommodate for Contacts/Cases being reassigned to new accounts. I plan to redact some parts of this post and post some new code that better conforms to accepted best practices. Until then, use this at your own risk.
You can't "add" media types to the driver. I'm not sure why you cant' see those choices. Maybe, try the English version of the driver if you are using another version.
I equally distrust some of the printheads posted on Ebay. Some may be used/refurbished listed as new or third-party listed as OEM. Impossible to tell. International or domestic doesn't necessarily mean trustworthiness, but domestic listings do offer more legal recourse if they prove false.

I'm running on a Mac 10.8.5. So, yes, newer Mac is not a problem.
Given my recent foray into large format printing, I needed to dig into the old junk drawer and excavate my Spyder2 Color Calibrator to profile my monitor. It's been a few years since I last used it, so off to... Continue reading

In NYC we keep our large format printers in the kitchen. So, what started as a simple desire to enlarge some of my photos ended up with me on Craigslist and ultimately hauling a six foot wide, 100+ lb printer... Continue reading

I've maintained this blog for a few years now, posting Salesforce related items on and off (admittedly more off than on). Recently, however, I was asked to kick it up a notch and become an offical blogger at's DeveloperForce... Continue reading

Just in Time (JIT) Provisioning allows you to create new standard and portal user records in Salesforce when a user first logs in via an IDP (Identity Provider). So, how is this useful for managing large portals? If you are... Continue reading

>>I had two practice runs with hypothetical cases over the phone The hypothetical cases were developed by the internal training group at my company. They were not provided by Salesforce. I Presented the case to a colleague and he provided feedback. >> one with my client case in front of a live audience. I presented the customer case study I had prepared to another set of colleagues and got their feedback. >>The mock cases I've seen have ranged from 3-5 pages in length Here I'm referring to the two prepared by my training department and the actual one I received during the actual review board. Unfortunately, the study guide provided by Salesforce only includes sample questions for the multiple choice exam and not a sample case of the review board. You may want to suggest that to them by emailing They're very responsive to feedback about this process.
It's not all coding and Jui-Jitsu for me. I'll be spending the first two weeks of June traveling around Alaska. The plan is for a few days exploring Seward and the Kenai peninsula, then 4 days camping in the backcountry... Continue reading

If you've worked with Salesforce for a while, you've probably come across the gotchas of some of the "standard" sObjects like Task, Event, Note, Attachment and some others. What these all have in common is that rather than having a... Continue reading

Yesterday, I passed part two of the three-part Technical Architect Certification for (Step one being the self-evaluation; which really doesn't count given that its free and you can take it repeatedly until you pass.) The third and final step... Continue reading

Just in BA. I searched high and low while I was out in San Juan, AR but there was nothing to be found.
Continuing on my trend of traveling and training, I'll be working in Buenos Aires for the next three weeks. So, I've started researching BJJ schools in the area. I've been to BA several times and usually I stay in either... Continue reading

If you practice JiuJitsu for a while, one of the most common questions you're likely to get is "Why?" -- second only to "Is that like Karate?" Since I don't have any visible tatoos, I'm over 35, and don't wear... Continue reading

Thanks for the invitation, Miguel, but unfortunately I'm back in the US now. If you can provide some additional information that might make be helpful to others looking for your gym, I'd be glad to post it here. As I mentioned, a Google Maps search for Ave Juan Pablo II (,-73.993975&sspn=0.008833,0.017874&z=16) just places it in the middle of Parque Metropolitano. I couldn't find Plaza Portisol at all. Are there any other landmarks nearby?
