Bug Life Cycle  and

Tutorial on regression testing.

If a developer finds a mistake in coding then that mistake is called as Error/Flaw.

If a tester detected any mistake in software coding then that mistake is called as Defect/Issue.

If a testers defect was accepted by developers to fix then the defect is called as Bug. Sometime customer facing problems in software after release that is also called as Bug.
