Bug Database Application

Does anyone know if any popular bug database application is available for download?
I don't need it to be super sophisticated, just basic requirements. It is for a small project. As long as issues get posted, followed and marked with a status, should be enough.
Any references are very welcome.

Thanks in advance!

This isn't the best forum to ask a question like that. It doesn't have anything to do with JSPs and a lot of the people who might be able to give you an answer won't be looking here.

There are many, many bug tracking/issue management products, both open-source and commercial. Here's a comparison of some of them:


I use Trac myself. I have it bundled into a VM appliance so that I can deploy multiple Trac systems with minimal effort. It's open-source, written in Python. Mantis is another popular choice.

One of the most popular products of all is Jira, which is written in Java. It's not free or open-source, but they offer many special deals.

One thing worth keeping in mind when selecting an issue tracking system is that some of them integrate closely with popular IDEs such as Eclipse. I have the Trac Eclipse plugin installed myself.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.

Thanks Tim. Will have a look. What would be the apropiate forum in your opinion? I chose this one, then if runnable in a JSP alike environment would best suit my needs. That's why.

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
