I am wondering what is the correct way of writing the term lifecycle (or is it life-cycle or life cycle) in the context of the systems development lifecycle or a software lifecycle etc.

I have seen the three options lifecycle, life-cycle and life cycle used, although it seems that if popularity is an indicator then life cycle is the correct term.

Please advise...

Best regards,
