The following paper may be of interest: * "XP, the Agile Alliance, and RUP" (http://home.earthlink.net/~salhir/#xpaarup) This paper elucidates the reality beyond the surface of the debate between heavyweight approaches and lightweight or "agile" approaches by delineating between the Unified Modeling Language (UML) and computer programming languages, deciphering the concepts of "weight" and "agility" relative to methodology and process, and exploring and bridging the chasm between XP, the Agile Alliance, and RUP to conclude that *RUP is a more massive but more agile methodology than XP, from which appropriately weighted and more agile processes than XP may be derived, with which more agile projects than XP may be executed*, and given RUP's broad scope, breadth and depth, and flexibility as a process framework and given XP's collection of practices, *the chasm is bridged via applying RUP, as a process framework, within which XP, as a collection of practices, may be leveraged*. I welcome your comments. Thank you.
