Hi all,

Anyone help me on this?

RUP is known to have it's version of DX (am i right in understanding that this is similar to XP which is why it is known to be a lightweight methodology)???

To what extent is RUP a lightweight methodology???

regards
shaz

RUP is a framework you can use to make methods. One of the first key tasks in implementing RUP is to configure the flavor of method you'd like to use. So you can pretty well pick & choose from all the roles, workflows, tasks, deliverables, etc in RUP and make it what you want. I'm not familiar with DX ... is that a Rational offering? Maybe an "agile" pre-configured selection of RUP features?

Look at Scott Ambler's AgileModeling.com and his EUP superset of RUP. He does a great job of reminding us to only do what really has value, enabling you to look critically at any method and skip the bits that aren't helping *you* deliver software more efficiently.

It's a RUP configuration created by Robert C. Martin, and it's called dX (read it upside down!).

Rational also had an XP plugin for it's RUP suite for download, but I can't find it anymore...

You might find Skinnier RUP and Agile Modeling with the Unified Process to be of interest.
