Subject [jira] Created: (GERONIMO-2242) Better output for port conflicts during startup
Date Sat, 29 Jul 2006 19:14:13 GMT
Better output for port conflicts during startup

                 Key: GERONIMO-2242
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
    Affects Versions: 1.1
            Reporter: Aaron Mulder
             Fix For: 1.1.x

Currently Geronimo produces about 230 lines worth of error messages if there's a conflict
on the web ports during startup (e.g. as a result of Tomcat already running on the same machine).
 Annoyingly, the "Address in use" message is kind of concealed by the massive stack traces,
and worse, it never actually says which ports are the problem.

This will likely be the most common startup error.  It would be great to detect it and suppress
the stack trace and instead emit a message along the lines of:

ERROR: Geronimo cannot start.  Port 8080 is already in use.  Please either shut down the product
listening on port 8080 or search for 8080 in var/config/config.xml and replace it with another
available port number.
