The server is started before it returns from
ZooKeeperServer has a isRunning method if you really want to check if it
My guess is the problem is with the client usage, you are probably trying
to use the client before its connected. You need wait for synconnected
event before you can invoke other api's on zookeeper.
To test this hypothesis, sleep for few seconds after the client is created
before using it.
