Hi,
I am a beginner and I am going through the Head First Java book.

The concept of Extreme Programming is quite new to me and I want to know if Java programmers use this style the most...

Is it Ok to prefer a different style of programming?

Extreme Programming (XP) is a set of programming methodologies that can be used. You can use some, most or all of them in any combination you want. I know of very few shops that use all of them - pair programming being the least common (this is my EXTREMELY limited survey).

Of course you are welcome to use other methodologies. Ultimately, when you work in a professional shop, the culture will determine what you use. you can always try and change it, but you will generally be working against a lot of inertia.
