Although software projects can benefit from XP practices, but all projects can not directly adopt it. Characteristics of some projects make it difficult to use XP thoroughly; therefore, we need to tailor XP to the local conditions, contexts and the size of these projects. In this article we will describe why defining XP by its practices has problem and argue why it should be defined by its rules. Then we precisely redefine rules of XP. With the belief that XP's practices do not define XP and…

XP On A Large Project – A Developer’s View

This paper is written from a developer's point of view, the experiences and the techniques that were tried and either became habit because they were useful, or never quite caught on, and a recommendation of what changes must be made to the XP process to be able to utilize this methodology and still produce quality code at a fast pace for a large project.

The experience from conception into implementation of XP through the first release that incorporates several iteration cycles is discussed and the positive and negative forces and how they have or have not been resolved to date are discussed.

Embracing Change with Extreme Programming

Rather than planning, analyzing, and designing for the far-flung future, XP exploits the reduction in the cost of changing software to do all of these activities a little at a time, throughout software development.

It was late 1999, and I was sitting at lunch with Pragmatic Dave Thomas and the rest of the North Texas XP interest group, and he said “But people aren’t software components”.

XP Lite Considered Harmful?

Using XP as a ‘tool kit’ of techniques and philosophies is recommended, as most companies adopt XP only partially and they adapt XP to fit existing practices and philosophies.
