The jvm agent won't listen on the wildcard #86

This code has an unexpected consequence. InetAddress.getLocalAddress is not, or ,but rather some interface or another. To accept connections on any interface, one must explicitly pass a null to getByName, but this code doesn't allow a means of passing null to there. I think it needs to map "" to passing null.

 private void initAddress(Map<String, String> agentConfig) {
    String host = agentConfig.get("host");
    try {
        address = host != null ? InetAddress.getByName(host) : InetAddress.getLocalHost();
    } catch (UnknownHostException e) {
        throw new IllegalArgumentException("Can not lookup " + (host != null ? host : "localhost") + ": " + e,e);

Fixed for 1.1.1: When host is "*" or "" the agent will listen on every interface, if no host is given "localhost" is used.

thanks again ...

BTW, when I use the wildcard on Max OS X I get back an IPV6 adress:

Started Jolokia for PID 10945

Don't know whether this provides any problem, though ...

I test on OSX with no ill-effects.
