Answer / lakshmi vardhani. b

When ever test engineer encounters a diffect during the
execution of test cases then he will log the defect in any
bug tracking tool.
But before posting the bug we should try to reproduce it in
different platfirms and confirm it whether it is a bug or
->When u log the bug Then its status is "NEW"

->When it is seen by dev or team lead then its status
is "OPEN"

->When ever developer fixex resolution type then the status
could be any one of the following

1) Resolve/fixed
2) Resolve/Works for me
3) Resolve/wontfix
4) Resolve/invalid
5) Resolve/duplicate
6) Resolve/later

-> When the Developer fixes the bug then its status
is "FIXED"

->Then test engineer will verify whether the bug is fixed
or not . then its status is "VERIFIED"

-> When it satisfies the functionality properly then he
will close the bug. Now its status is "CLOSED"

-> If the fixed bug does not satisfy the functionality then
the test engineer shold again reopens the bug. now its
status is "REOPEN"

so these r the various stages of bug life cycle.
