-- When softwareis created, it undergoes various stages of development, with an evaluation or a type of issue tracking system in place. It is nothing but a software application designed to help quality reassurance and for programmers to record informedbugs for software. There are open source software projects available for the Bug Tracking Tools
that allow users to report bugs directly. The companies involved in software products development use these tools in a widespread functional arena and they prove to be extremely beneficial. Steady use of an issue tracking system has become a benchmark of an excellent software team.
The market has multiple tools with varied benefits and functionality. IBM Rational Quality Manager and HP Quality Center are two tools used for a long time for test management that have their own tracking systems for bugs, whereas other tools work together with popular issue tracking systems.The issue pursuing or management factor helps in the functionality supported by other Bug Tracking Tools
and also has the feature of bug reports’ traceability that is very helpful in using cases, test cases and requirements. The full combination makes this possible, and also provides higher quality than other comparable systems.
Sometimes it is seen that the bug and issue tracking tools work together with software project management applications. Thereby this method facilitates in tracking the bug and fixing in a common development process of a particular product. Fixation of bugs in severalnumerousreports, designing knowledge sourcemechanicallyfor the product and release notes at the same time are some functions of these tools.
Effective Bug Tracking Tools
have the capacity of impartial issue reports that may not be connected to any project requirements, scenarios, use casesor test cases. They also have the potential to voluntarily link an issue report to a scenario, a requirement, a use case or test case. Administering issue reports, as they are worked on by the development and the test team, across the lifecycles and sustaining the reciprocity between issue reports and test cases are also done by these tools. With such tools you get the facility to move issue reports between sprints (iterations)
and releases that offers scheduling of bug fixes in multiple sprints/releases. Work in estimated work hours on the issues as the bugs are tracked and actual hours re being utilized. Developers also offer impact analysis information for all the fixes so that the test team uses effectual regression testing.
