Question: Are RUP and UML related?
The answer is not so simple as the question. RUP is a process (Rational Unified Process). UML is a language (completely independent of process). The RUP does suggest that artifacts are created using UML for your design (although I have seen nowhere where it says this is mandatory, artifacts however of one kind are mandatory). RUP is also a software package in a sense as it comes with templates etc for the design process. Since it is a Rational product it is also integrated with Rational Rose (their UML design tool). So the answer is if you are using RUP then you will most likely be using UML.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
