Misleading documentation for Netty components

      Description

      The documentation currently references "localhost" as the listening address in many places. For example:
      netty4-http:http://localhost:8080[?options]
      Typically the localhost address is only used for the loopback adapter and is not accessible externally.

      See https://stackoverflow.com/questions/20778771/what-is-the-difference-between-0-0-0-0-127-0-0-1-and-localhost

      Standardizing on "0.0.0.0" in the documentation could prevent a lot of confusion for developers who might not be aware of this nuance. It seems like localhost is not the correct configuration for the majority of use cases.
