A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
java.net.BindExceptions should include the address and port number.
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 :
When an BindException is thrown it should detail the address and port on which the bind failed.
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.
