[Thread-0] ERROR spark.Spark - ignite failed java.net.BindException: Address already in use


These are my dependencies...

dependencies {
    compile 'org.slf4j:slf4j-simple:1.7.25'
    compile 'com.sparkjava:spark-core:2.7.1'
    testCompile group: 'junit', name: 'junit', version: '4.12'

Can someone help me? I'm getting this error at runtime:

Nevermind, I figured it out, I had it already ranned when I ranned it. I shut down the first one, then ran again and it works now.
