How to Export/Publish custom Objects to Production SF.Org?

I've built a custom App on my Developer SF.Org, and I would like to publish it to my EE Production SF.Org (without having to manually rebuild all of the Objects, Fields, Code, etc.).

 

I have a *little* bit of experience using the Eclipse Force.com IDE (not even sure if that's a viable option for this). 

 

I've never Packaged a Custom App before.

 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

 

Steve :-/

 

PS.    Oh yeah, as usual money is tight, so getting a 3rd Party App for this is out of the question.

Hi Steve,

 

You have 2 options, you can use the Force.com IDE or you can create a package. If this is a one time thing, I think a package may be your easiest route. If you know you are going to make more changes in your DE org and want to push them to your EE org on a regular basis, then go with the IDE. There's some great tutorials on the IDE in the Force.com Workbook.

 

You can get the IDE here. And you can find a step-by-step guide to build a package here.

 

Don't forget to achieve 75% or higher test coverage.

 

Hope that helps,

Sati
