Naked Objects and agile software development have been suggested to
complement each other. Very few empirical studies to date exist where a
product has been developed using the Naked Objects technologies in an agile
development environment. This study reports results of a case study where a
mobile application was developed using the Naked Objects Framework.
Qualitative and quantitative data was collected systematically throughout the
project. The empirical results offer support for the argument that the Naked
Objects approach is suitable for agile software development. The results also
reveal weaknesses in the current Naked Object Framework, namely, that it is
not yet mature enough for applications that require intense database
operations. The results also show that the development team was able to create
an operational user-interface just in five hours, which demonstrates the
applicability of the Naked Object Framework in practical settings.
