> I am experimenting with using webtest to test JSF applications. Its working well, but the problem I have with actually using it is that in JSF if you include something like  <h:inputText id="blah" /> in a page, it ends up in the html with a id/name of name="x:y:z:blah" where x:y:z are the parent components, and the ids may be generated automatically based on position, and if so look something like name="_id3:_id9:_id10:blah" .
> Having <verify* name=?x:y:z:blah? /> in tests won?t cut it, because it makes the tests extremely fragile, as the x:y:z part of the id changes as soon as you move something around in the source code of the page.
> The ideal would be something like <verify* nameEndsWith=":blah" /> , or being able to do a reg exp on the name: 
>  <verify* nameRegexp=".*blah" />
