Subject RE: connection refused, localhost not found
Date Mon, 08 Dec 2003 12:41:56 GMT

I got this problem with MLDonkey (not really java, I know but hey.. :P)

This simply means your program crashes on startup and that nothing listens on port 8080.

Now.. dunno what browser you use but I had this with Mozilla.
I tried to connect to http://localhost:4080/ it didnt find anything on that port so it
went on with resolving random/known by mozilla things, till it found which
actually is an existing page.

Motto of this story is: your app is not running or not on port 8080 :-)
