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..
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
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...
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.
