Iterative development is founded on the recognition that we cannot plan perfectly, that we need an approach that enables us to adapt to and make progress in the face of change. It is basically dynamic planning that incorporates, and even seeks out, new information. While iterative development is not a new concept, it is not particularly well documented. The basic principles of iterative development are the basis of approaches such as Extreme... more...

The most significant of these changes is with respect to the hypermedia functionality which is enabled by the new... more...
