The major sources of revenue for any telephone company (eg. Telekom Malaysia) is the selling of ads in their directories (ie. Yellow and White Pages). At first glance, this may seem like a simple process - go to a company, ask them if they would like to purchase an ad in the Yellow Pages, and if so design an appropriate ad and place it in the proper section. In reality, however, this process can be enormously complex, with various factors needing to be taken into account. They include the size of the ad, the number of colors it has, its position on the page, the size of the text, the number of lines that the buyer can specify text for, and number of different fonts it contains. When I joined net-linx and involved in nxApex project I was introduced to new methods in software development. The nxApex project team worked in an Extreme Programming (XP) environment one of agile methodology. So in this technical report I will discuss a little bit on XP practice and the different between this still evolving methodology and traditional methodology. Here I found that this XP methodology is a discipline of software development based on values of simplicity, communication, feedback, and courage. The different between traditional methodologies and agile methodologies is similar to the different between the situation when you are traveling by plane and traveling by your own car. In this writing I also talk about the project that I am involved with – nxApex. Here I will focus for the user story that been assigned to me, the System Administration. As conclusion, I found that using agile methodology is more reliable to this kind of project where involvement of customer in all phases is essential.
