Eclipse/Class save error – This Apex class has batch or future jobs pending or in progress

I was constantly getting an error “This Apex class has batch or future jobs pending or in progress” whenever I was saving Apex class written for batch Apex. This was happening in the developer org where we develop a test managed package for the AppExchange product. There was no way I can throw out this org and start with a new one.

For debugging started with following steps:

  1. Check Schedule Jobs – No schedule jobs (If any are running and related to your class somehow you can just delete the schedule job)
  2. Check Apex jobs – No Apex is job is running or in Queued state. (If are running you could just click “Abort”)
  3. Google – Found some known issue and checked workarounds which were of nouse.

As nothing worked logged a case through Salesforce Partner portal as job needed to be deleted from the backend. But case got¬†categorized as a developer support case. Not having the premium support it Case got closed ūüėź


Then¬†started research –

  • Tried deleting all running schedule jobs through Apex in case any is stuck in the background and not visible on UI.

No Luck!! ūüôĀ

  • Making query on the AsyncApexJob object –¬†SELECT Id, Status, JobItemsProcessed, TotalJobItems,¬†ParentJobId, NumberOfErrors FROM AsyncApexJob Where Status = 'Queued'¬†et voila!! returns the job stuck in Queued status which was not visible through UI. I thought my job is over I will just copy Id from the query result and execute “System.abortJob(jobid);” But that didn’t work. It needs a ParentJobId which was missing from this entry. – No Luck ūüôĀ
  • Then came across a tiny line in the¬†Salesforce Article. If you want to abort a job using Job Id use API version 32.0 or earlier. Login to workbench using v32.0 and from “Execute anonymous” execute¬†System.abortjob(). This time it worked… Finally!!! ūüôā

Error: ‘google’ is undefined in IE8

While using the Google Api forOrg chart generation I came across the error “‘google’ is undefined” when i was testing it in IE 8 browser. The same code was working fine in Mozilla¬†FireFox¬†. Google the error was not able to find solution. ¬†After lots of searching fixed it by doing a small one character change in the URL. Can you guys guess what would be that?

<script type=”text/javascript” src=””></script>


<script type=”text/javascript” src=””></script>

Its really frustrating. Dont know this is the solution for this or not. But it worked for me!!

Outlook 2010 Beta Send/Receive Not working

While trying the MS Office 2010 beta version, I came across the strange problem. Send/ receive was not working after it imported the settings from Outlook 03.

It was very difficult to trace why it was not working, as it carries on processing and process never stops.

Then I started Googling for the same and got a hint from following link-

My problem got resolved when I killed OUTLOOK.EXE from task manager and exited those send a smile/frown from the tray.

And yuppie !!! problem was resolved.
