I have Eclipse 3.4 and 3.5 loaded on my PC. I can start Tomcat in the 3.4 installation but when I attempt to start it in Eclipse 3.5, I receive the following message:

Several ports (8005, 8080, 8009) required by Tomcat v6.0 Server at
localhost are 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)
.

However, using netstat and TCPView, I've ensured that, in fact, no process has these ports open. If I change Tomcat to use other ports, I get the same message with the port numbers reflecting my changes.

Any thoughts?

As far as I know, you will only see this message if the WTP Tomcat
support in Eclipse is able to open a connection to at least one of the
ports reported. I don't know how that can happen without the port being
open.

Cheers,
Larry
