As for the SDLC, we tend to focus on the "back-end" processes such as construction, testing, and deployment and less on requirements. My assertion in the book is to:

1) Take fundamental software development practices: building your software, testing your software, inspecting your software, rebuilding your database/data, and deploying it into the target environment (e.g. Tomcat on a particular machine)
2) Make these processes automatic by running them with a scripted, automated build
3) Make it continuous to increase visibility and feedback so that all team members know the status of the software under development (from a single source)

This link to the table of contents should give you a good idea of what's in the book: http://safari.informit.com/9780321336385?tocview=true

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
