java.net.BindException: Address in use: bind error

Hi,

I get the port in use error above when implementing this line:
ServerSocket ss = new ServerSocket( portnumber);

Most likely the reason I get it because I run my program over and over as I am testing this.

I know I can restart the server or my machine to resolve this port in use, but is there a way to programmatically resolve this issue?  Thanks.

ss has to be closed before you can open another ServerSocket on the same port.

You could open a different port each time you started the server.
