>      Project: James
>         Type: Bug
>   Components: DNSServer
>     Versions: 2.2.0
>  Environment: Tested on WIN2000, JDK 1.4.1_01-b01

> org.apache.james.dnsserver.DNSServer.getByName(String) does not always return the same
result as java.net.InetAddress.getByName(address). Sometimes an exception is thrown when the
standard implementation does not.
> When passed a fully qualified domain name the results are the same. When passed a hostname
or the special name 'localhost', a java.net.UnknownHostException is thrown by org.apache.james.dnsserver.DNSServer
while java.net.InetAddress resolves the addresses correctly.
> This is a critical issue as in v2.2.0 java.net.InetAddress.getByName() has pretty thoroughly
been replaced by org.apache.james.dnsserver.DNSServer.getByName(), but in the noted circumstances
it doesn't perform the same. Dependent code breaks.
> Here are the contrasting examples...
> // FAILS
> String address = "localhost";
> java.net.InetAddress inetAddress = org.apache.james.dnsserver.DNSServer.getByName(address);
> return inetAddress;
> // FAILS
> String address = "hostname";
> java.net.InetAddress inetAddress = org.apache.james.dnsserver.DNSServer.getByName(address);
> return inetAddress;
> // SUCCEEDS
> String address = "localhost";
> java.net.InetAddress inetAddress = java.net.InetAddress.getByName(address);
> return inetAddress;
> // SUCCEEDS
> String address = "hostname";
> java.net.InetAddress inetAddress = java.net.InetAddress.getByName(address);
> return inetAddress;
