Charset cannot be set per file for resources #247

Loading files via the ` tag does not support setting the charset to use for reading the file. This is problematic if we want to use several files with a charset different than the default Citrus charset.


Support a charset attribute in the resource tag like this:

<resource file="classpath:iso_datei.txt" charset="ISO-8859-1"/>
<resource file="classpath:utf8_datei.txt" charset="UTF-8"/>

The corresponding readToString function already exists in the FileUtils class, see code.

Note: as a workaround you can use a Groovy script to load the file contents with the correct charset into a Citrus variable (here inputFileAsString):

    String fileAsString = this.getClass().getResource('/path/to/file').getText('ISO-8859-1')
    context.setVariable('inputFileAsString', fileAsString)
