    Red face What methodology to use for planning/developing a Language conversion project?

    I am trying to help my friend by creating a part of his on-going project. What i'm going to do is create a java parser to break up the java code into operators, parameters etc to build xml representation. Next I want to create a code generator to convert the parsed java code to XML conforming to the schema I've created. Finally I want to use an XML style-sheet to transform the XML into another programming language type. I hope this makes sense as I'm new to the area of programming. Basically I just wanted some advice on which methodology/model I should use for documenting/planning and developing this project. Is there some benefit to using Agile etc for instance? Thanks in Advance.

    I can only guess you are not familiar with the tool, or you probably would not have asked this question. The tool is meant to keep forward momentum in a project in the most cost effective manner. (to put what I know about it in a nutshell)
    There are many tools dedicated to software development, and in one way or another they are all useful. Devote some time to the research if you are serious about taking on the project. Ask questions as they arise.
