[contribution] DNS utils

                 Key: NET-163
             Project: Commons Net
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Nikolay Chugunov

Hi all,
I developed DNS methods for resolving IP address by host name and vice verse; receiving mail
exchange and authoritative name servers for domain; and receiving other information about
domain from DNS server.

JDK provides above functionality in JNDI DNS service provider [1]. But JNDI technology is
too abstract and obfuscates communication with DNS servers, which leads to users don't use

Attached classes provide evident API for receiving information from DNS server as wrapper
for JNDI DNS SP. Also these classes provide necessary additional parsing of answers.

Examples how to use created API can be found in DNSClientTest unit test. This library requires
only JDK and JUnit to run the test.
