Dear experts,

Please advise, Can one build a custom object or an application in FREE developer edition and then migrate to Production such as Enterprise Edition? If so, how to approach?

Thanks,

Kumar

This can be done using any of the deployment tools such as the Salesforce deployment tool or workbench. About the only option that is not possible is change sets.

Hi Dave,

Thanks for your response. My understand is, Migration can be done with any of migration tool except Chage sets, such as force.com IDE, API.

Correct me if i'm wrong.

Srujan, that is correct. Change sets require the Salesforce Orgs to be linked while the other methods only require having a user account with System Admin privileges on both source and target Orgs.
