Defective modules in the software pose considerable risk by decreasing customer satisfaction and by increasing the development and maintenance costs. Therefore, in software development life cycle, it is essential to predict defective modules in the early stage so as to improve software developers' ability to identify the defect-prone modules and focus quality assurance activities. Many researchers focused on classification algorithm for predicting the software defect. On the other hand, classifiers ensemble can effectively improve classification performance when compared with a single classifier. This paper mainly addresses using ensemble approach of Support Vector Machine (SVM) for fault prediction.
