This week on the developer blog and youtube we’re focusing on the Automated Test Framework, or ATF. If you’re not already familiar, ATF enables you to create and run automated tests to confirm that your instance works after making a change. For example, after an upgrade, during application development, or when deploying instance configurations with update sets. Review failed test results to identify the changes that caused the failure and the changes that you should review.

The developer advocate team is currently ramping up on the Rome release features so we can start bringing you great Rome release developer content, but I wanted to pause and write this post because it’s been a little while since we’ve had a UI Builder Bytes post. I had someone reach out via the community the other day because they had seen my UI Builder - Adding a Customer Component with Events post, and they were wondering what they needed to do to get their components’ properties exposed in UI Builder in addition to the events.
