Differentiate defect life cycle and test cycle...

Answer / sujatha

When talking about the defect life cycle we will discuss
only about the bug process i.e

When new bug is found the bug status is OPEN,then if the
developer feels it is a valid bug then he fixes the
bug ,then the status changes to FIXED,else if the bug is
invalid then he rejects the bug, here the status is
REJECTED, else if the bug is enhancement then the bug
status is HOLD.

The tester retests the fixed bug , it it gets close then he
closes the bug with status CLOSED else if still some
problem with the same bug he will mark the status as REOPEN.

Now, coming to the test cycle, here we discuss about the
entire test life cycle where bug life cycle is part of it.
