Thsnk you all so much. I really could do with this book.

A BIG thanks to Robert Martin for sharing his time and thoughts. I will be keeping an eye on his work.
That is, I'll be keeping an eye OUT for his work. See this thread
What are you trying to say ? in one of the most active forums on JavaRanch.(where some notable authors end up for some curious reason).
Did Uncle Bob make an XP convert of you then, Thomas ?

Congratulations to the winners. Coming to Agile Software development, how is it different from OO programming practices? Can somebody please comment. Have a nice weekend every body. I'll get back to my J2EE learning process and after that to

My understanding is that you'd have to learn OO really well in order to work more agilely. Not only you but the whole team. And each individual should expect to be mentored and pass that on as the opportunity arises.

Agile development does not require OO.
OO is a design methodology, Agile development is a project culture above all else.
The two are often used together, but either can exist without the other.

True! I suppose you could use Agile Development Practices to write COBOL programs. Perhaps Robert Martin will bring a book out for UML for COBOL Programmers. [Really now !]
( I know of one interested party - Jeff Bosch)
