[RTWW and RPT] Standardizing the Datadriven approach

currently there are 2 different types of approaches in handling data driven testing approach. in
if there are 10 data entry fields in a UI screen and user enters data to 1 field and leaves 9 fields empty. During the test generation, RTWW will generate only 1 field as a datapool entry.
If the user is going to generate an "HTTP" test out of the same recording, then RPT will generate 10 fields as a datapool entry.

This difference in approach for data driven will have impact on
1. standardizing Datapools across all products of RTW
2. test data fabrication, where we can have test datas generated for both functional and performance testing.

    As part of the review process, we strive to be transparent about our intentions with each enhancement suggestion. The offering team has carefully reviewed this idea and has decided that it does not fit into our current plans, so the idea will be closed. The idea will be kept in IBM's ideas repository and may still be voted on. It might be reassessed or reopened for additional feedback in the future. We value your feedback and thank you for allowing us the privilege of partnering with you in developing our products.
