Real-time source validation and deployment

Using a robust parser for Apex, SOQL, and SOSL and a tight integration with the Tooling and Metadata APIs, Illuminated Cloud is able to provide validation of Apex and Visualforce source code as it's entered.
As-you-type validation

Configurable API client

This near-real-time validation and deployment feature is highly configurable with distinct options for the desired behavior when files are edited, opened, and saved.  And of course the "think time" delay before validation is performed can be configured to allow a balance between responsive feedback and responsible use of the precious Total API Requests resource!
