RUP (Rational Unified Process) is an iterative process for software development; originally proposed in 1988 as the Rational Objectory Process. Wennerlund then proposed the Unified Process [1]. The Rational Unified Process can also be regarded as a software engineering process, delivered through a web-enabled, searchable knowledge base [2] & [3]. This paper represents an overview of Rational Unified Process; its history, and practices involved; stressing its advantages and disadvantages. A comparison with other approaches is mentioned in context; whenever appropriate.
