Bug Tracking and Reliability Assessment System (BTRAS)
Tracking of a reported bug for fixing is a fascinating area of research in software engineering. Many open source, free and commercial bug tracking tools have been developed and are currently under development. The industry needs criteria to select the best tool among the available set of tools that will help in fixing and tracking the progress of bug fixes. In this paper, the authors use BugZilla, Jira, Trac, Mantis, BugTracker.Net, Gnats and Fossil for comparative study. They present a comprehensive classification criteria to review the available tools and propose a new tool named Bug Tracking and Reliability Assessment System (BTRAS) for the bug tracking/reporting and reliability assessment.
