informative enough:

"ps -lf 4041" gives you a bit more of information about the process.

since it's a java-process, I'd bet my bottom-penny that Tomcat is
already running.
Further bet: You tried to shut down Tomcat, but shutdown failed for
whatever reasons.

What to do?

Verify, what process actually blocks port 8080 and end that process.

If it's Tomcat, run Tomcat's

If Tomcat won't shutdown using said script, a "kill 4014" should help

Aftert hat: Check the log-files what went wrong when shutting down
Tomcat (Rights? Maybe you tried to start Tomcat as root?)

Hope that gives you a start

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