[wi 86503] Addition of an API method and of an ant task to add an artifiact to a project in the RAM Eclipse Client

Currently, if you want to automatically add specific artifacts to a project in the RAM Eclipse Client, you are left with no other choices than the one of creating yourself a rambuildercontrol.xml file and adding the proper nature and builder to your project. But the rambuildercontrol.xml file is not a publicly documented file, so it makes this operation unsupported.

Therefore, it would be great to have an ant task and an API method to link a RAM asset/artifact to a project.
