The application development cycle is a series of processes or steps that structure the development of an application in order to finish a project in the most efficient way. Development cycles vary depending on the type of organization and even its goals. As a result, each organization may have a unique development cycle.
The processes within the cycle not only focus on the actual coding of the application software, but also incorporate the logic and design processes upon which the coding is based. This is typically done at the beginning of the cycle when all requirements are being defined.
