comment Would scala be a good choice instead of Java?
Yeah, that was considered. Not sure where I should start looking now and stick to C# :)

That had been suggested in the past but it has been decided that we move away from .net.

You might be right. I was thinking of it in terms of getting a product out in a year or so whilst at the same time being able to reuse code in .net and java. Your points are well noted :)

Only about 10 developers will be working on the new product. I am just trying to find out what the pros and cons of going with Scala would be.

There are so many products written in Java so getting them to learn C# would be difficult. I was hoping with Scala, once we have the new product, the java developers could use libraries as is without needing to learn Scala.

comment Does agile development need a framework in place first?
Thanks Saeed. What I understood from agile is as you said "give the developers and businessmen a chance to understand...". If I do not have a UI in place, how can I get show at the end of an iteration (sprint) what has been achieved?

comment Does agile development need a framework in place first?
Thanks for all the information, this has been very helpful. Lets say we don't have much of the framework in place, how can I deliver anything if there is no UI to show the customer? From a TDD or BDD approach would it be fine to show the acceptance tests passing?

comment What does it mean to be agile?
I started off doing a lot of TDD but have now switched to BDD which is more in align with the customers needs as acceptance tests. Although I feel that TDD helped creating designs I would not have seen otherwise in addition to providing tests.

Yes I agree with you 100%. My manager read a book on agile and just got on with it (although very badly). I used TDD on the server side of the project but the others did not want to learn it or see the the benefit of it. We had a framework (on the client side) which took forever and the developer kept arguing that he just needed to get on with it (without interference).

comment What does it mean to be agile?
Thank you Jarrod for your answer. Should TDD be apart of agile? It was hard getting developers thinking in this way. In the end as I mentioned they did some tests at the end (if they remembered) and said it was TDD. I agree with everything you have said. The feedback loop was pretty much non-existent because my manager felt it was interfering with the "framework" which took months and months to right. By then we were stuck implementing functionality that did not meet the customer requirements.

comment Should we choose Java over C# for a new project?
@Thanks for your input. At this stage we still not decided (well the .net team that is) so any arguments are beneficial at this stage.
