The Bug Life Cycle Series

I have been talking about Bugs in the Software Applications in my recent posts. They play an important role in Software Development & Testing. The biggest value addition is to uncover the critical issues of the system at the early stage.

I have already written some posts on the Bug Tracking front and find the list below. They talk about how to handle the Bugs, avoid conflicts & the lessons to be learned for the testers.


The above posts doesn’t cover all aspects of a Bug.  I feel that it’s better to write more on the Bug Life Cycle & explore the same.

The Bug Life Cycle series will have the following posts and i will be writing them in frequent intervals.

  1. The Role of Software Testing

  2. An insight into Bugs in the Software Applications

  3. Context driven information for Bug Reports – It’s the need of the hour

  4. Life Cycle of a Bug – Different Stages in it

  5. Communicate the Value of Bug Reports

  6. The End Game

Stay tuned & check out the blog for upcoming articles.
