[Webtest] iF statement patch

I don't know if it's in the latest. (My guess is no but easy enough to
find out. src/com/canoo/extension/Ifstep.java. In some ways, I do agree
that conditional testing is not a good idea. But in reality, at least
for me, this has some use.) But I went through the same not finding the
examples. So, here it is.=20

The ant property var1 is set to true. (in property file: var1=3Dtrue or
<property name=3D"var1" value=3D"true"/> in the build file.)

                stepid=3D"test ant property condition"
                  stepid=3D"inside the 1st test condition"
                  text=3D"some conditional test text string or reg ex"

The dynamic property var2 is set to true. (e.g. <storexpath
xpath=3D"count(//a) &gt; 0" property=3Dvar2/>)

                stepid=3D"test dynamic property condition"
                  stepid=3D"inside the 2nd test condition"

Like <repeat>, you can have multiple steps between <iF> and </iF>.

Subject: [Webtest] iF statement patch

Is this patch integrated in the build now, or is it still only available
as a patch?

And is there an example anywhere of what the 'iF' looks like in the
actual WebTest script?  Jeannie said there was an example in her
posting, but I couldn't find it (doesn't mean it wasn't there, I might
just not get it).
