Free port 8080

I'm trying to run a servlet on a server that wants to use port 8080.  It won't run and when i put in http://localhost:8080 the Oracle servlet engine page comes up.  How do I turn that off and on?

If you are on Windows go to registry HOTKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE-->Services-->CurrentControlSet

looking at the parameters figure out which service listens on port 8080. After that figure out who uses this service and stop it.

Find the service of Oracle which is listening on port 8080. As I remember the O/S utilities give you the possibility to check out which process is listening on this port. Turn off this service. It will no listen on port 8080.

Yeah, i know there are those commands but i don't know what they are.  I remember net???????  something or another but the help for just net isn't giving me anything.

I did stop that.  Still when i put in localhost:8080 the Oracle servlet engine page comes up.  In the meantime i've just made the Websphere port 8084.  Would still like to know how to stop that 8080 port.

The article (see URL below) describes the problem best. Port 8080 frees up, if TLS listener is stopped - hardly affordable solution...
