Software faults are a major threat for the dependability of software systems. When the authors intend to study the impact of software faults on software behavior, the issue of distinguishing faults categories and their frequency distribution arises immediately. For this clear detection, clear classification is needed. Very little is actually known about the types of faults that programmers insert into their software. It is becoming more important that these faults are classified into different categories. In this project, a programming technique is implemented where programmers are required to categorize their faults at each iterative build of the software build cycle.
