    Re: What is showstopper bug?

    Hi Srinu,

    Any bug that does not let the user proceed ahead with testing the specified functionality would be called as a ShowStopper.

    Generally such bugs are assigned the highest Priority of fix.

    For Instance - User is testing a Online Shopping site. After Selecting the required items into the Shopping Cart, he clicks on Order Button.

    Expected Result : User Should be Redirected to Order and Billing Page

    Actual Result : Application displays a webServer error and displays a http Page not found error page.

    Thisi would be logged as a ShowStopper bug since you do not have any workaround to proceed ahead with testing the Orders Page.

    Cheers...

    ShowStopper!! name itself tells that any bug that doesn't allow the user to proceed with testing called as ShowStopper!!

    ShowStoppers are raised as P1 ( High Priority ) defeccts and one should look into these defect fixes as highest priority.

    Re: What is showstopper bug?

    hi friend..

    You can't continue anything if the bug arises.. it stops every activity then and there.. you can continue the process once the error is cleared...

    For Ex: If you need to withdraw money from the bank, when you are reaching bank you came to know the bank is on strike ..once the bank is on strike ATM will also be closed now tell me how you can with draw the money?????.. The bank strike stops your activity ..then it is called as show stopper..

    Thanks

    Re: What is showstopper bug?

    Good explanations , given by members ! the following should be considered as well:
    1. The Phase of Testing you are in .
    2. Does it affect a single function or entire functions.
    3. Frequency of occurance

    Re: What is showstopper bug?

    So many answers, funny the ones that are just plain wrong. A show stopper, as stated has no work around, prevents you moving forward in the use of the application or unit tested. It stops the show.
    What other classes of bugs do you have apart from show stopper...

    Re: What is showstopper bug?

    Hi
    Hi friends

    Showstopper defect checks the testing to move ahead with that specific module or unit.

    It simply truncate the test execution.

    Example:
    A site with is used for photo editing task is being tested.
    In the home page it ask for browse a photo from internet or
    the local computer. When we select a photo and press the
    upload button.

    Then it should take to the next page for editing purpose.

    But it shows a error message with going to the next page
    which terminate/stopped the testing.

    This is what we call showstopper defect.

    Thanks.

    Re: What is showstopper bug?

    showstopper is a hardware or software bug that makes an implementation effectively unusable; one that absolutely has to be fixed before development can go on. Opposite in connotation from its original theatrical use, which refers to something stunningly.
