Bug Severity Calculator

https://github.com/bashiulAlam/bug-severity-calculator.git
A simple Java GUI application to calculate the severity of bugs.

We implemented the logic to determine the severity level based on the answers to the three provided questions. The application took the selected answers from the dropdown as input and calculated the severity levels such as blocker, highest, high, medium, low, and lowest.
