How do you find port number where JIRA/apache is on?

Using scriptrunner, code below seems to find Catalina server and the port number (8080). However, if run from within a plugin on the same JIRA instance, Catalina is not found and service is null.

Any insight is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

import org.apache.catalina.Server;
import org.apache.catalina.ServerFactory;
import org.apache.catalina.Service;
import org.apache.catalina.connector.Connector;

int portNumber = 0;
Server server = ServerFactory.getServer();
try {
    Service service = server.findService("Catalina");
    // service is null if this were run from within a plugin. 
    Connector[] conn = service.findConnectors();
    portNumber = conn[0].getPort();
catch (NullPointerException e) {
    // java.lang.NullPointerException: Cannot invoke method findConnectors() on null object
// 0 when run from within plugin. 8080 when run from scriptRunner.

Hi Danny,

I'm not very keen in the plugin coding, however if you can get the port from the file Catalina_home/conf/server.xml that should also work. The port is located inside that file and if you can reach that file then you might be able to fetch the port number from the file.

Just an idea. :)
