I wrote a fairly long response, and then decided to delete it and come back with a question of my own. In doing an e-commerce project, what attributes should your development process exhibit? chet ------------------ author of: Extreme Programming Installed(The XP Series)

Mamata. XP , RUP are software process. Foundation stones for developing software. Many organisations involved in s / w development do have their inherent processes. It can be applicable to manufacturing or other industries. RUP was developed by Three Amigos ( Boobh , Raumbaugh , Jacobson ) with huge years of experience. Similarly , XP was introduced by Kent Beck with his wealth of experience. It can be applied to any projects , but you have to check the coditions prevaling in the project & verify with those process ( RUP , XP ) ,then only sellect the process. Specifications of aplicability of Process is very important. XP has got its own set of guideline ( 12 golden rules ). check those things & seek the appropriate process for your project , whether it e -com project or other. I hope this will be useful.

In case the above seem cryptic, the answer must be "yes". If these methodologies are to be much use at all, they must be of use for e-commerce; it's such a significant part of the software development landscape.
sorry , Mamta , if I sound cryptic to you. See what i mean to say that it may / may not be feasible to apply XP to e - com projects that you have mentioned. As XP says it is applicable to team of 4 to 10 people. if your team is fitting that criteia , you move ahead. There are other criterias mentioned in the XP. You can find out the attributes of your project & check if it confirms to criterias of XP & then go ahead with applying XP to your project. it is not necessary for everythig , each methodology can be applied. see previously also , people have triedto do that & failed measourably. that was the reson for birth of new methodology. So , who knows some one will come up with the methodology specifically applicable to E - com project of any kind. Generalization is sometimes dangerous.
It's exactly the same and completely different as this tiny ad:
