    Description

      When starting JBoss like this: "standalone.sh -b 127.0.0.2 -c standalone-ha.xml", the startup fails because 127.0.0.2 cannot be resolved.
      However, a loopback address should be recognized even if it doesn't resolve to an interface. The code below works for example:

      InetAddress addr=InetAddress.getByName("127.0.0.5");
      boolean is_loopback=addr.isLoopback(); // should be true
      

      Loopback addresses are very useful for local testing, ie. starting of multiple JBoss instances on the same box.
