Since you're running in a shared environment, it's always a bad thing
to assume that a certain port is free. Both ports in the case are
frequently used by JVM developers so I would expect conflicts. That
does not only sucks in cases such as shared CI environments but also
on some random developers machine who might not be able to run a your
build due to her having something using one of those ports.

Personally, I always use port=0 in all my unit tests for these exact reasons.
