Enhance text verification possibilities

         Key: WT-251
         URL: http://webtest-community.canoo.com/jira/browse/WT-251
     Project: WebTest
        Type: New Feature

    Versions: 2.1    
    Reporter: Marc Guillemot
 Assigned to: Marc Guillemot 
     Fix For: future versions

There are currently 2 options for text verification:
- regex="false" (the default): performs a full text match
- regex="true": performs a regex text search (ie: it can be a substring)

This shows that at least 2 other possibilities are missing:
- full text substring
- regex match

WebTest should provide these 2 new possibilities in a flexible way allowing to configure own one when needed. The verification steps need to be extended to accept a new attribute, let say "mode" or "compare" allowing to specify one of following values "full" (default, would do the same as current regex="false"), "substring", "regex_match", "regex_find" (would do the same as regex="true"). Furthermore it should be possible to use "myVerification" if a custom myVerification verifyer has been registered previously.

Good ideas concerning the name of the new attribute as well as the names of the 4 standard possibilities are welcome.
