The agile movement has received much attention in software engineering recently. Estab-lished methodologies try to surf on the wave and present their methodologies as being agile, among those Rational Unified Process (RUP). In order to evaluate the statements we evaluate the RUP against eXtreme Programming (XP) to find out to what extent they are similar and where they are different. We use a qualitative approach, utilizing a framework for comparison. We conclude from the analysis that the business concepts of the two – commercial for RUP and freeware for XP – is a main source of the differences. RUP is a top-down solution and XP is a bottom-up approach. Which of the two is really best in different situations has to be inves-tigated in new empirical studies.
