Lightweight/light approaches/methods are starting to be referred to a "agile". This indicates their embracing of *change* which is pretty much the norm in today's business environment. Old, heavy methodologies are better suited for bureacratic or life-critical environments where projects take 5-10 years to complete. I personally wouldn't want to wait 5 years to see my work in production! Not that there's anything wrong with that... To this end, I started a Denver/Boulder user group to explore XP and other agile approaches and have 170+ members in a few short months. I think there is definitely a grass roots audience of engineers who have seen "puffy" approaches crash and burn, leaving charred piles of outdated docs and useless/untested code.

Hi, aviggio (or Alex if this is Alex Viggio from the Denver XP group) Could you please check out the JavaRanch naming policy and re-register with a different user name? Thanks, John
The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen all at once.
