Software testing is one of the very most important phase of software development life cycle. At this stage, a beta version of the software product will be release for testing and the test enginers are responsible for validating the product with respect to customer proposed or commited requirements.
During testing phase, test engineers inspect the software by validating the requirements and work flow, installation and performance measurements and many other defined test parameters that helps to certify the software to the next level. In parallel to devlopment activity, the test team also responsible for preparing the test cases for the defined requirements. Once the veersion of the software build released to the testing team, each test engineer run these tests systematically and find the defects. The Bug Tracking System/software/tool, that helps project team to log, track and monitor the defects observed during software testing.
This article aims to list out available Open Source Bug tracking tools and software’s for software team to track and manage the defects and development tasks effectively.
