The hardest part of a developer’s life is not to write great code but, to deal with annoying part of an application during phases of development. A bug is what we believe to cause the most inconvenience to user while in the middle of an application. And hence it is must require to take the measures at every phases of development.

A software bug is an error, flaw, failure, or fault in a computer program or system that causes it to produce an incorrect or unexpected result or to behave in unintended ways.
