Software testing is an activity to enable a system is bug free during execution process. The software bug prediction is one of the most encouraging exercises of the testing phase of the software improvement life cycle. In any case, in this paper, a framework was created to anticipate the modules that deformity inclined in order to be utilized to all the more likely organize software quality affirmation exertion. Genetic Algorithm was used to extract relevant features from the acquired datasets to eliminate the possibility of overfitting and the relevant features were classified to defective or otherwise modules using the Artificial Neural Network. The system was executed in MATLAB (R2018a) Runtime environment utilizing a statistical toolkit and the performance of the system was assessed dependent on the accuracy, precision, recall, and the f-score to check the effectiveness of the system. In the finish of the led explores, the outcome indicated that ECLIPSE JDT CORE, ECLIPSE PDE UI, EQUINOX FRAMEWORK and LUCENE has the accuracy, precision, recall and the f-score of 86.93, 53.49, 79.31 and 63.89% respectively, 83.28, 31.91, 45.45 and 37.50% respectively, 83.43, 57.69, 45.45 and 50.84% respectively and 91.30, 33.33, 50.00 and 40.00% respectively. This paper presents an improved software predictive system for the software defect detections.
