JBuilder Tomcat port configuration

Hi Expert,

I am using JBuilder Enterpirse Studio 7. I configured Tomcat 4.0 to run my web applicaiton. But getting the following exception. I looked at all the configurations to see if I can change the port number, but couldn't find any. When I go to http://localhost:8080 - nothing is configured but http://localhost:8081 something is already occupied that port. I just want to use a new port.

Help is greatly appreciated

Hi Again,

Just to give some more info:

I tried this option also but it throwed FileNotFoundException saying that it could find server8080.xml file
Change tomcat port in server.xml and it should be like this :
<Connector className="org.apache.catalina.connector.http.HttpConnector"
port="8080" minProcessors="5" maxProcessors="75"
enableLookups="true" redirectPort="8443"
acceptCount="10" debug="0" connectionTimeout="60000"/>
Change the port 8080 to someother port.
I have had this problem before,even when the app is closed the server keep running for some unknow reason.
I usually shut down my machine and the restart windows as well as JBUilder and it works fine then.

try this as well
go to Project-> Project Properties -> Run -> clik on the project u r workingin -> Edit -> clijk  on the JSP/Servelt on th eleft pane. You will be able to change the Server port this way.

for server.xml, JBuilder will look for server????.xml which ???? is port number that you config in Project Properties like apple said.
