Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-11) CouchDB should handle errors when opening port gracefully
Date Fri, 14 Nov 2008 04:16:44 GMT


Chris Anderson commented on COUCHDB-11:

The behavior seems to have gotten worse lately. Checking on this issue, for me, when I have
CouchDB running on port 5984, and then I try to launch another copy also on the same port,
I get no error at all.

It may be helpful to note that if I start Couch A, and make a request, CouchA responds. Then
when I start Couch B, and request again, Couch A still responds. 

OTOH, starting fresh from no couches, if I start Couch A, and then Couch B, and then make
an http request, it goes to Couch B. Oh nevermind it's not that deterministic. I'll have to
do more testing to see what happens (not that it matters).

The easiest thing would be to make Couch fail fast and clear if it's port is already taken.
