I have gathered some resources at http://faq.javaranch.com/view?RupLinks and http://faq.javaranch.com/view?ExtremeProgramming

You should also search this forum - you should be able to find many relevant discussions on the topic.

Feel free to come back with more specific questions! For interview-specific questions, you might also want to try the Job Discussions forum - but please choose only one forum per question, don't crosspost.

I would like to suggest(please do not consider this as rude or anything of that nature). You may have to look at your written English; I can see some glaring grammer issues here. They may be detrimental during your professional carrer. Please consider this as a positive suggestion.

It's hard to answer such a broad question - there are whole libraries of books written about it...

I suggested the job discussion forum because the people there are more likely able to tell you what's relevant in an interview.

Anyway, tell us how it went!

** Most important diff - RUP is a framwork, XP is a process**

RUP is a project framework that describes a class of processes that are iterative and incremental. RUP compliant process deliver functionality in small increments, each building on the previous, and each being driven by use cases rather than being the construction of a subsystem. RUP processes estimate tasks and plan schedules by measuring the speed of iterations relative to their original estimates. Early iterations of RUP driven projects are strongly focussed upon software architecture; rapid imple-mentation of features is delayed until a firm architecture has been identified and tested.

a minimal implementation of RUP was called dX . The principles and practices of dX were identified several years ago by Ward Cunningham, Kent Beck, Ron Jeffries, and a host of other developers and methodologists. They have used this process on several projects with significant success. Because of that success, they have gathered quite a following. They call the process Extreme Programming; or for short: XP

There's some historical challenges that I'd like to point out.

RUP is a project framework that describes a class of processes that are iterative and incremental.


Actually, the Unified Process is a framework from which iterative and incremental (evolutionary) processes can be defined. The RUP, and the EUP for that matter, are instances of the UP. The RUP is now being marketed by IBM Rational as both a process and a framework from which you can tailor your own process.

Actually, Bob Martin first wrote about dX a few years ago in a rough draft of a book he was writing at the time. He was showing that RUP could be dramatically cut down to be something close to XP (dX is XP turned upside down). His company, Object Mentor, developed a plug in to RUP to cut out out most of the kruft so as to make it far more agile.

XP did not, in any way, shape or form, come from RUP.

I'd like to start a separate thread or group here to refine the Agile Waterfall pattern for generative object-oriented development including distributed, outsoured test-first quality and .NET pair programming.

Paul Chisholm, in a note about a closely analogous topic, writes: War is peace. Ignorance is Strength. Freedom is Slavery. Process is Agility.
