      Description

      The Apache Commons class org.apache.commons.validator.routines.UrlValidator method isValid() fails on URLS where the hostname has a trailing period, like "http://www.cnn.com./WORLD/?hpt=sitenav"

      A trailing period on the hostname part of the URL is valid according to http://www.dns-sd.org/TrailingDotsInDomainNames.html and ANY URL I try does work successfully even when I put a trailing dot on the end of the domain name.

      Can you add a fix in for this, so I can still use the URLValidator?

      Thanks,
      -Alex
