Change the Owner of the record through Apex

Hi Guys,

Is it possible to change the owner of the record through Apex code? If so, how to achieve it?

Yes, it is possible. You need to update the ownerId field with the Id of the User who should be the owner. For eg: In the below eg i am updating the Owner of the account.
 
Account a = new Account(id='0019000001GWXUB', ownerId = '0059000005GWMUB') // hard coding just as to make understand
update a;

Thanks bro. Is it possible to set the value to the ROLLUP Summary field through Apex?

It is not possible to set a rollup field - these are basically a formula field which looks at all child records which match the criteria set out in the field.

Many thanks
