    Abstract :

    Bug localization is the task to locate the source code entities which are relevant from the bug report. Manual bug localization is a time-consuming task as developers has to go through thousands of source code entities to locate the relevant one. Current research provides methods as various IR techniques, classifiers, combination of classifiers to improve bug localization. Due to the increasing size and complexity of current software applications, automated solutions for bug localization can significantly reduce human effort and software maintenance cost. This can be done with the help of an Ant Colony Optimization Technique.
