that means that some process is using port 8080. Since a port can only
be bound to one process, the attempt to bin it to a second one fails.

Is it possible that Tomcat is already running?

In case you#re on Linux / Unix, what gives

netstat -lnp | grep 8080 ?

Well, that means that the exception thrown doesn't return a proper
error-message. I would put that behind for the time being.

the XML-parser used is not able to parse an XML-file.
Would be interesting to kniw, which XML-file we#re talking about here, though.

My best guess is, that you either might have a problem with CTR/LF at
the linde-ends of said XML-file or a problem with the encoding.

Did you transfer any data from Windows to Linux / Unix / alike?


just because your paranoid, doesn't mean they're not after you...
