How a Bug Challenges to a Software Professional

It is really interesting that a bug can create problem for a learned person even the bug is not alive. One day my one friend was working and a bug created much problem. It was not easy to track the bug. evrytime bug was challenging any other different problem.

What is bug : When there is a defect in a software program, we call it a bug. If we start the product and it crashes, there is a bug. If one find a typo in the help system, that's considered a bug too. The report which is about software problem is called software problem report (SPR), which is the same as a bug report.

What is bug tracking: A bug tracking system is designed to track the bug. It is considered as a database. The bug tracking may be homegrown or it may be a commercial system. In any case, a bug is entered as a record in the database, where it can be assessed and tracked. The user interface for bug tracking usually consist of navigable views and forms for editing existing bug reports or writing new ones. In bug tracking a unique login ID and password is provided to every user. When a user writes a bug, adds comments or changes a status field, a good bug tracking system will log the ID of the person, creating or amending the record. That is the way a true history of a bug report for bug tracking is maintained. One of the most important feature of bug tracking is keyword searching. For example while saving a file any user finds a crash bug. The bug tracking system software should have the facility to perform a keyword search on "crash and file".
