Can you please tell what are the differences between various software development methodologies like JDDT(Join Design Development and Testing .. this is similar to Oracle's AIM methodology I guess), Extreeme Programming, Agile Programming, RUP.

Thanks & Regards,

I really think it would be best to simply look up descriptions for each and build your own concept of the differences. Anyway, here are some one-liners:
XP = A disciplined agile process built on a set of established core practices
RUP = A (commercial) bag of practices and artifacts to pick from for your custom process instance, can be anything from very waterfallish to very agile
AP = No such thing, I guess? I've only heard of "agile programming" as an abstract category of agile methods such as XP.
JDDT = No idea.

Mhh, Google didn't find anything on JDDT...

Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
