Well, depends on the software development model.
When one does something very new, either in problem domain or technology being 
used, it is often wiser to go for a prototype - test - refine cycle instead.

A usual program will see both kinds of methologies being deployed, often 
starting with the refinement cycle approach for the initial implementation or 
feature set, going for a design and test approach for refactoring or rewrite.
