RUP has 4 phases and each phase is divided into number of iterations, now I want to know whether we pass through all the phases of RUP in each of the iterations(format1 mentioned below) or the iterations moves in progressive in each of the phases (format2, mentioned below).
Iteration1 , we have inception,elaboration,construction and transition
Iteration2 , again we will have inception,elaboration,construction and transition
Inception phase: we have iteration 1 and iteration 2
Elaboration phase: we have iteration 3 and iteration 4
Construction phase: we have iteration 5 and iteration 6
Transition phase: we have iteration 7 and iteration 8
I feel the structure should be in the format1 mentioned above. Any clarification is appreciated.
