Subject RE: Help with Tomcat Install?
Date Wed, 08 Sep 2004 16:28:05 GMT

There is at least one of other possible cause for this error.

Perhaps your shutdown cannot be completed normally.  For example, if you
start a non-daemon thread from your app and never shut it down, it will
keep running.  That will prevent the JVM process from exiting and the
port will stay bound, even though all the Tomcat stuff is gone and you
won't be able to connect to Tomcat with a browser.

In that case, you'd need to kill the process in order to release the
port.  Then you'll be able to start up again.  Of course, you should
debug why this is happening.
