Create a <selectWebClient .../> step
------------------------------------

         Key: WT-242
         URL: http://webtest-community.canoo.com/jira/browse/WT-242
     Project: WebTest
        Type: New Feature

    Versions: 2.1    
    Reporter: Marc Guillemot
 Assigned to: Marc Guillemot 


WebTest should allow to drive more than 1 web client in the same test. This could be done with a new step like:
<selectWebClient name="..."/>

Simple usage scenario with an application with a front part and an admin part:
- with 1st browser, log in as admin, enter new content item
- with 2nd browser, go to the front page, verify that the new content item is displayed
- with the 1st browser, remove the content item (or move it offline)
- with the 2nd browser, verify that the content item is not displayed anymore on the front page

Currently such a simple scenario requires steps like (steps that should be avoided are marked with *):
- log in as admin, enter new content item
-* log out as admin
- go to the front page, verify that the new content item is displayed
-* log in as admin again
- remove the content item (or move it offline)
-* log out as admin, go to the front page again
- verify that the content item is not displayed anymore on the front page

Of course the benefits of such a step would grow with the complexity of the test scenario.
