Defect Tracking Systems in testing is the process which report the defects and also provides the complete information regarding defects. In the testing phase the tester will identify the defects. Whenever the tester encounter number of defects he adds the defect id and information in the database.The tester reports to both project manager and developer. The defect details in the database table are accessible to both project manager and developer. The project manager assigns projects to the developers. The developer develops the projects as per customer requirements. The project manager itself assigns the developed applications to the Testers for testing. The tester tests the application and identify the defects in the application. When the tester encounter number of defects, he generates a unique id number for each individual defect. The defect information along with its id are mailed to the project manager and developer. This is defect Report. These are stored in the database. This is useful for further reference. Defect information includes the defect id, defect name, defect priority, project name, defect location, defect type.This whole process continues until all the defects are got fixed in the application.The defect report is mailed to the project manager and the developer as soon as the defect is identified. This makes that no error will go unfixed because of poor communication. It makes ensure that anyone who needs to know about a defect can learn of it soon after it is reported. Defect Tracking System plays an vital role in the testing phase. But it supports assigning projects for the developer, tester by the project manager. The Defect Tracking System maintains the different users separately i.e., it provides separate environments for project manager, developer and tester.
