Do you want commercial or open source software, Windows or other operating system? Do you need it to integrate with your editor?

CVS is very widely used open source  solution of source control and also has graphic interface tools available. However, Subversion (SVN)  is gaining popularity.

i were using CVS but it just control on source code not bug tracking, i want a soft that support source control and bug tracking, commercial software is ok, but not too expensive, my company just 25 developer working together

... it's all about Java Source Control Tools!

Because source control and bug tracking are doing very differnet tasks, I do no think they can be combined in the one tool. You will need to choose 2 seperate tools. Here are some free bug trackers. They are both very complete, but need a bit of effort to set up and customise well.

This is a commercial bug tracker, easier to set up, but geared more to help desk tasks then software development

Bug tracking software:

My personal favorite is FogBugz:  http://www.fogcreek.com/FogBugz/
It is not free, but it has the advantage that its author writes some
excellent essays on software development practices:

But Bugzilla is frequently used as well: http://www.bugzilla.org/

My two cent on this topic:

- Bugzilla for bugtracking (free, ok to use, quite flexible), URL was given above already
- CVS (included in 99% of all Linux distributions) or Subversion (SVN, http://subversion.tigris.org/) for source control (free)

If you'd like to use CVS, check out WinCVS (http://www.wincvs.org/) as a Windows Client, or if you prefer SVN, check out TortoiseSVN (http://tortoisesvn.sourceforge.net/), also for Windows.

On Linux (and on Windows, too), e.g. XEmacs and of course Eclipse has CVS support directly from the IDE. Very neat.

Bugzilla, SVN and CVS are best installed on a Linux server (like a Debian system), but there are solutions for Windows servers, too. But if you already use a Linux server (e.g. as a file and/or web server), there's no problem installing either of these server softwares (for a small team) on the same machine.

Whatever you do: DO NOT USE VISUAL SOURCESAFE! ;)
