im going through practise papers to understand more about java and uml.

I dont understand this question :-

Describe the incremental/evolutionary delivery model of software development. What are the advantages and limitations? Relate this model to the UML software process?

The question doesn't make any sense at all, as the UML *is not* a software process.

Also, if they want to know the advantages of something, they probably should tell what they want you to compare it to. :roll:

With all due respect, your practise papers don't seem to be very good in this regard...

The papers are past university exam papers... so I dont understand how the question cannot make sense?? Im totally stuck...and worried if this question will come up in the real exam, as it is a question worth 10 marks

Well, they are probably written by humans, so there are actually a whole lot of ways how bad questions could get into exam papers...

Well, if I encountered this in an exam question, I would probably:

- compare incremental/evolutionary methods to Waterfall, and
- explain that UML can be used both in i/e- and waterfall-style projects.

Don't know how much points that would get me, of course... If your intention is not to be right, but to get maximum marks, you will probably need to ask someone familiar with the exam and the evaluators.
