  • Now that we kill the launcherThread if it isn't shut down properly, seems some ports still stay in use causing thread not to start again in future, so get java.lang.IllegalThreadStateException at java.lang.Thread.start(Thread.java:595) at org.sonatype.nexus.test.launcher.ThreadedPlexusAppBooterService.start(ThreadedPlexusAppBooterService.java:89) at org.sonatype.nexus.test.utils.NexusStatusUtil.start(NexusStatusUtil.java:112) at org.sonatype.nexus.test.utils.NexusStatusUtil.doSoftStart(NexusStatusUtil.java:82) at org.sonatype.nexus.integrationtests.AbstractNexusIntegrationTest.startNexus(AbstractNexusIntegrationTest.java:554) at org.sonatype.nexus.integrationtests.AbstractNexusIntegrationTest.oncePerClassSetUp(AbstractNexusIntegrationTest.java:206) at sun.reflect.GeneratedMethodAccessor21.invoke(Unknown Source) at sun.reflect.DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.java:25) at java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke(Method.java:597) at org.junit.runners.model.FrameworkMethod$1.runReflectiveCall(FrameworkMethod.java:44) at org.junit.internal.runners.model.ReflectiveCallable.run(ReflectiveCallable.java:15) at org.junit.runners.model.FrameworkMethod.invokeExplosively(FrameworkMethod.java:41) at org.junit.internal.runners.statements.RunBefores.evaluate(RunBefores.java:27) at org.junit.internal.runners.statements.RunAfters.evaluate(RunAfters.java:31) at org.junit.runners.BlockJUnit4ClassRunner.runChild(BlockJUnit4ClassRunner.java:73) at org.junit.runners.BlockJUnit4ClassRunner.runChild(BlockJUnit4ClassRunner.java:46) at org.junit.runners.ParentRunner.runChildren(ParentRunner.java:180) at org.junit.runners.ParentRunner.access$000(ParentRunner.java:41) at org.junit.runners.ParentRunner$1.evaluate(ParentRunner.java:173) at org.junit.internal.runners.statements.RunBefores.evaluate(RunBefores.java:28) at org.junit.internal.runners.statements.RunAfters.evaluate(RunAfters.java:31) at org.junit.runners.ParentRunner.run(ParentRunner.java:220) at org.apache.maven.surefire.junit4.JUnit4TestSet.execute(JUnit4TestSet.java:62) at org.apache.maven.surefire.suite.AbstractDirectoryTestSuite.executeTestSet(AbstractDirectoryTestSuite.java:140) at org.apache.maven.surefire.suite.AbstractDirectoryTestSuite.execute(AbstractDirectoryTestSuite.java:127) at org.apache.maven.surefire.Surefire.run(Surefire.java:177) at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Native Method) at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(NativeMethodAccessorImpl.java:39) at sun.reflect.DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.java:25) at java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke(Method.java:597) at org.apache.maven.surefire.booter.SurefireBooter.runSuitesInProcess(SurefireBooter.java:345) at org.apache.maven.surefire.booter.SurefireBooter.main(SurefireBooter.java:1009)
