General Step webtest

Description

This ANT task provides the ability to specify and execute functional tests for web-based applications. The steps of the test specification to execute are defined as a sequence of nested test steps. Each <webtest> task is executed in its own web session, i.e. two subsequent <webtest> tasks are executed in different sessions. This task was previously named "testSpec". For compatibility reasons, both names will work.
