Lane, Michael S. and Van der Vyver, Glen Litton and Koronios, Andy (2003) Is XP agile for the development of Web information systems? In: ACIS 2003: 14th Australasian Conference on Information Systems: Delivering IT and Business Value in Networked Environments, 26-28 Nov 2003, Perth, W.A..
Agile methodologies are being touted as the next major paradigm shift in development of information systems. However, there is little empirical evidence to determine how well suited agile methodologies such as Extreme Programming (XP) are for fast paced web development. This paper presents the findings of an empirical study that investigates the suitability of XP for web development. Evidence from the findings would suggest that there are many benefits to be gained from using XP. However, there are also many problems in using such an approach because web development is embedded in HTML. However, as the Web becomes more object-oriented with emergence of Web services, agile methodologies such as XP will become increasingly important and more suited to web development.
