BUG LIFE CYCLE

Bug Life Cycle (BLC) is the life cycle of the bug from finding a New bug to Closed that bug.

  • First of all when a new build Release from the Development Team to the Testing Team.
  • Testing Team performs Testing on the build.
  • If No any bug found in the build then that stable build delivered to the Client.
  • If any bug found in the build then the Status of that bug will be New and Testing Team send that bug to the Development Team.
  • Development Team will check that bug according to the given bug description from the Testing Team.
  • If Development Team found that reported bug is a feature or false bug then they change the Status of that bug from New to Not a Bug or Rejected and send back that rejected bug to the Testing Team with proper comment and explanation.
  • If Development Team found that reported bug is really a bug then they change the Status of that bug from New to Open and started working on it.
  • When Development Team resolves the bug then they change the Status of that bug from Open to Fixed and send it back to the Testing Team.
  • Testing Team performs Testing on that Fixed bug.
  • If that bug really fixed then they change the Status of that bug from Fixed to Closed.
  • If that bug is not fixed then they change the Status of that bug from Fixed to ReOpen and send it to the Development Team with the proper comment.
  • Development Team check that ReOpen bug and if it is resolved as reported previously by Testing Team then they change the Status of that Bug from ReOpen to Fixed with proper commenting & send it back to the Testing Team.
  • If that ReOpen bug is really not resolved then Development Team change the Status of that bug from ReOpen to Open.
  • After fixing that bug they change the Status from Open to Fixed and send it back to the Testing Team.
  • If that bug really fixed then they change the Status of that bug from Fixed to Closed.

So this whole process continues until the build is stable.
