Hi Sami,

Thanks for you reply. I want to integrate both the quickbook and salesforce apps together. Yeah! We have so many external tools (Autofy, DBSync, Zapier, etc..) Intially, I used Autofy to integrate both Quickbook and Salesforce.

But now, I would like to use Salesforce Canvas feature to integrate Quickbook API with Salesforce. And my question here is, whether it's possible to use Canvas feature uh?

1. To set the end point URL we should configure the Remote Site Settings.
 Go to Setup Security Controls Remote site Settings New Remote Site.
2. Create Controller class to call the Wal-Mart API (WalmartController)
Go to Setup Develop Apex Classes New
global class WalmartController{
public Integer ItemId{get;set;}
public List<Items> dr{get;set;}
public WalmartController(){
public void requestM(){
    String url = 'http://api.walmartlabs.com/v1/feeds/specialbuy?apikey=YourApiId&categoryId=3944';
    HttpRequest req = new HttpRequest();
    Http http = new Http();
    HttpResponse res = http.send(req);
    String responseBody = res.getBody();
    system.debug('statuscode: ' + res.getStatusCode());
    //system.debug('Response : ' + responseBody);
    ResCls resItem = (ResCls)JSON.deserialize(responseBody, ResCls.class);
    system.debug('Response after deserialization: ' + resItem);
    system.debug('Response Items: ' + resItem.items);
    List<Items> rl = resItem.items;
    dr = new List<Items>();
    for(Items it:rl){
        system.debug('Item Name: ' + it);
        ItemId = it.ItemId;
        system.debug('ItemId: ' + it.ItemId);
   system.debug('List: ' + dr);
