Unable to start Apache Tomcat 6 from eclipse
Posted on 2008-10-28
Dear fellow Java developers:
I am trying to launch tomcat 6 from eclipse 3.3 (europa), but it fails while it is in the process of doing so. I get the following error message:
Port 8005 required by Tomcat v6.0 Server at localhost is already in use. The server may already be running in another process, or a system process may be using the port. To start this server you will need to stop the other process or change the port number(s).
What I don't understand is that I am able to successfuly launch tomcat on my own from the command line, but unable to do so in eclipse. What gives?
Thanks in advance to all who reply.
