Tags used in tests

A test is a set of test cases. Each test case imitates a dialog between a client and a bot. Test cases are enclosed within the <test></test> root tag.

Test cases are specified within the <test-case></test-case> tags. Special tags are used in test cases. These tags are similar to some of the Tovie DSL tags.
