    Is this for tests or for production use?
    
    > Using an ephemeral port may work but it makes trickier setting up things.
    How does it make things tricker? Each server you set up in the test setup just needs to
expose a method to query which port it is listening. This is simplier than using a whole other
transport, and ensures the same code paths will be used in the test as will be used in production.
    
    > Without opening ports you can run multiple parallel tests easily
    Opening ports doesn't have to be hard.
    
    > Opening a port can be seen as a security risk.
    Tests should not be run anywhere security is a concern.

>             Project: ZooKeeper
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: java client, server
>    Affects Versions: 3.5.2
>            Reporter: Enrico Olivelli

> ClientCnxnSocketNetty and NettyServerCnxn use explicitly InetSocketAddress class to work
with network addresses.
> We can do a little refactoring to use only SocketAddress and make it possible to create
subclasses of ClientCnxnSocketNetty and NettyServerCnxn which leverage built-in Netty 'local'
channels. 
> Such Netty local channels do not create real sockets and so allow a simple ZooKeeper
server + ZooKeeper client to be run on the same JVM without binding to real TCP endpoints.
> Usecases:
> Ability to run concurrently on the same machine tests of projects which use ZooKeeper
(usually in unit tests the server and the client run inside the same JVM) without dealing
with random ports and in general using less network resources
> Run simplified (standalone, all processes in the same JVM) versions of applications which
need a working ZooKeeper ensemble to run.
> Note:
> Embedding ZooKeeper server + client on the same JVM has many risks and in general I think
we should encourage users to do so, so I in this patch I will not provide official implementations
of ClientCnxnSocketNetty and NettyServerCnxn. There will be implementations only inside the
test packages, in order to test that most of the features are working with custom socket factories
and in particular with the 'LocalAddress' specific subclass of SocketAddress.
> Note:
> the 'Local' sockets feature will be available on Netty 4 too
