Subject [jira] Created: (GERONIMO-4010) Detect port conflicts before starting application server
Date Mon, 12 May 2008 17:32:55 GMT
Detect port conflicts before starting application server

                 Key: GERONIMO-4010
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: New Feature
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: core
            Reporter: Cedric Hurst

Like many Geronimo users, I've often experienced port conflicts when starting my app server.
 These conflicts result in the dreaded NET_BIND error.  While most of us have learned to hunt
down the error by running netstat and comparing the ports against those defined in the
file, it would be much more user-friendly to have the app server do this automatically.  Ideally,
the server would detect the port conflict on startup, do a netstat in the background, and
provide an error message with the port and conflicting system process.  At the very least,
the NET_BIND errors should be caught and replaced with friendlier error message containing
the conflicting port number.
