      A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
      java.net.BindExceptions should include the address and port number.

      JUSTIFICATION :
      In a J2EE environment where many services and applications are running on the same machine it is not at all clear on which service/interface/address the bind actually failed on.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      When an BindException is thrown it should detail the address and port on which the bind failed.
      ACTUAL -
      Mostly the BindException is detailed like this:

      java.net.BindException: Address already in use

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      The only way of working around it is doublechecking all your code and deployment/configuration descriptors.
